18 April


Dir. Nadine Labaki | Lebanon, USA 2018 | 126 mins | 15 | Subtitled

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes (and nominated for Best Foreign Film at the Oscars), this heartbreaking and defiant film tells the story of a poverty stricken Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the crime of giving him life.

12 year old Zain lives with his family in Beirut – a city that, for a boy like him, is a place without peace, mercy or order. Deeply angered by his poverty, his parents’ failure to protect him from it, and the desperate compromises they have made to get money, he runs away from home - where he forms an unlikely bond with an Ethiopian migrant and her young toddler. 

Lead by first-time actor Zain Al Rafeea, a Syrian refugee who gives a phenomenal performance (he received a 10 minute standing ovation at the premiere), Capernaum is an arresting look at crushed innocence and the link between poverty and anger.

Tickets: £7.75 / £6.00 (inc. Poly Fund)
