IMDbRotten Tomatoes

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Nadine Labaki's film tells the story of Zain (Zain al Rafeea), a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the "crime" of giving him life. It follows Zain, a gutsy streetwise child as he flees his negligent parents, survives through his wits on the streets and takes care of Ethiopian refugee Rahil (Yordanos Shiferaw) and her baby son, Yonas (Boluwatife Treasure Bankole). “Capernaum” was made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters whose lives closely parallel their own. 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 inhumanity, “Capernaum” is ultimately a hopeful film that stirs the heart as deeply as it cries out for action. Labaki does beautiful work with her nonprofessional cast, most of whom are refugees.” –Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“It’s a fairy tale and an opera, a potboiler and a news bulletin, a howl of protest and an anthem of resistance.”  New York Times
“A social-realist blockbuster – fired by furious compassion and teeming with sorrow, yet strewn with diamond-shards of beauty, wit and hope.” The Telegraph
Cast Zain Al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw, Boluwatife Treasure Bankole
