Capernaum (15)

Stars: Zain Al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw
Director: Nadine Labaki
(Lebanon/France, 2018, 126mins)

 Capernaüm ("Chaos") tells the story of Zain (Zain al-Rafeea), a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the "crime" of giving him life. The film follows Zain as he journeys from gutsy, streetwise child to hardened 12-year-old "adult" fleeing his negligent parents, surviving through his wits on the streets, where he meets Ethiopian migrant worker Rahil, who provides him with shelter and food, as Zain takes care of her baby son Yonas in return.

Following the screening of the Oscar and BAFTA nominated Capernaum we will be screening a special recorded Q&A with writer-director Nadine Labaki (hosted by Francine Stock) The Q&A runs at 13mins.
