126 mins – Lebanon / USA 2018 – Subtitles – Dir: Nadine Labaki
Starring: Zain Al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw, Boluwatife Treasure Bankole

In this Lebanese drama, director Nadine Labaki chose to cast non-professional actors whose lives closely mirror those of their characters. Labaki placed them in scenes with no script and allowed them to react spontaneously, adapting the screenplay accordingly. Capernaum (which means ‘chaos’ in Arabic) is the story of a young boy named Zain who stands before a judge and asks to sue his own parents for giving him life. Capernaum is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit.
