      Film of the Month: Capernaum
      Lebanon, France 2018
      Director: Nadine Labaki
      Starring: Zain al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw, Boluwatife Treasure Bankole
      Distributor: Finnkino Theatrical Distribution
      Duration: 2 h 6 min

      Capernaum tells the story of Zain, a Lebanese boy who sues his parents. The charge is unusual: bringing a child into the world in conditions where survival is a struggle.

      The film has gone from victory to victory in various parts of the world: it was Lebanon’s nominee for the Academy Awards last year and won the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes. Young Zain al Rafeea’s incredible performance as a street boy who refuses to give up hope makes it one of the year’s most impressive films.

      Shot in genuine locations on the streets of Beirut, the film only features non-professional actors. The leading role is played by a Syrian refugee who uses his real name in the film. Director Nadine Labaki got the idea for the trial in the film while doing some background work with refugee children.

      The event is covered by the Kaikukortti card.
