Receiving a 15-minute standing ovation, the Cannes Jury Prize as well as creating a lot of Oscar buzz, this heartfelt drama centres on a runaway boy who attempts to divorce his parents.

Written and directed by Nadine Labaki (Caramel), Capharnaum tells the story of 12-year old Zain, who is suing his parents for “giving [him] life”. Along the way, Zain forges an unlikely bond with a toddler, the child of an Ethiopian maid working illegally in Lebanon. Filming on location in Beirut, Labaki draws out astonishing performances from her cast of non-professional actors, taking the viewer on a journey into subterranean areas of the Lebanese capital, where people exist below the poverty line and lack any legal recognition. 

Capharnaum acts as a platform for all those living without the basic human rights of education, health and love. A must-see of the festival.

"Sensational … a social-realist blockbuster – fired by furious compassion and teeming with sorrow, yet strewn with diamond-shards of beauty, wit and hope." – The Telegraph
