Travelling Film Festival: Capharnaüm

February 16, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival 2018, Nadine Labaki’s funny yet tough feature film tells the genuinely moving story of a troubled 12-year-old Lebanese boy.

WINNER: JURY PRIZE, CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2018
SELECTED: PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD, TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2018

Zain is so incensed by his impoverished parents’ behaviour that he runs away from home. On Beirut’s streets, he encounters an Ethiopian refugee and her baby, and ends up babysitting the tiny child. After a series of mishaps and misdeeds, Zain ends up suing his parents for ‘giving him life’. The young non-professional performers, whose roles are not that far removed from their own lives, are outstanding in this not-to-be-missed award winner.

Capharnaüm is a howl of protest against social injustice, a film as grounded in a place and time and yet as universal in its empathy with the dispossessed as Bicycle Thieves or Salaam Bombay! – Screen International
