SYNOPSIS


'Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, CAPERNAUM ("Chaos") and Nominated for Best Foreign Film category of 2019, a new film by Nadine Labaki about the journey of a clever, gutsy 12-year-old boy, Zain, who survives the dangers of the city streets by his wits.  He flees his parents and to assert his rights, takes them to court suing them for the "crime" of giving him life.

The film was made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters whose lives closely parallel their own. Following her script, Labaki placed her performers in scenes and asked them to react spontaneously with their own words and gestures. When the non-actor's instincts diverged from the written script, Labaki adapted the screenplay to follow them.

While steeped in the quiet routines of ordinary people, CAPERNAUM is a film with an expansive palette:  without warning it can ignite with emotional intensity, surprise with unexpected tenderness, and inspire with flashes of poetic imagery.

Although it is set in the depths of a society's systematic
inhumanity, CAPERNAUM is ultimately a gift that stirs the
heart as deeply as it cries out for action.'
