Capernaum tells the story of clever, gutsy 12-year-old Zain, who is forced to fend for himself on the streets of Beirut. After enduring abuse, negligence, and a series of tragedies, he takes his parents to court, suing them for the “crime” of giving him life. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Nadine Labaki (Where Do We Go Now?), this impressive Oscar-nominated drama burns with emotional intensity, surprises with unexpected tenderness, and inspires with poetic imagery.
