Capernaüm

Our film on Tuesday 4 February 2020 at 19:45 is Capernaüm, a searing 2018 drama from Lebanon. Set in Beirut, the film tells the story of 12-year-old Zain (Zain al Rafeea) as he escapes his chaotic home and makes a life in a shanty town with an Ethiopian immigrant and her baby. An astonishing piece of neo-realist cinema, using a non-professional cast: Zain was a Syrian refugee found in the slums. Directed by Nadine Labaki.
