There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

The Cannes Grand Jury Prize-winning story of twelve-year-old Zain, small for his age but clever at surviving the chaos of his life in a Beirut slum. A series of events lands the boy in spiritual and legal peril, and he sues his own parents for giving birth to him.


CAPERNAUM is a hectic and heartbreaking film, driven by its director Nadine Labaki’s curiosity and the charisma of her young star, Zain al Rafeea.”A.O. Scott, New York Times

“With two astonishing child performances… it’s a gripping, sympathetic cry for the dispossessed.”Ian Freer, Empire
