Winner of numerous awards including the Jury Prize at Cannes 2018, writer-director Nadine Labaki’s (Caramel, Where Do We Go Now?) sensational Capernaum depicts children on the very edges of society – and in the poorest slums of Beirut – fighting to survive. Performed with incredible veracity by a largely non-professional (and very young) cast and brilliantly staged and shot, it’s a rough, vigorous, angry film investigating the profound experience of childhood poverty and neglect.

Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at Oscars, BAFTAs and Golden Globes

Winner of Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize and Nominated for Palme d'Or

We're pleased to offer a special recorded Q&A with writer-director Nadine Labaki (hosted by Francine Stock) which will be shown after the 8.15pm screening. This Q&A was specially recorded to be added to select theatrical screenings of CAPERNAUM and features great insight into the making of the film and back story about the cast and where they are now. The recorded Q&A runs at 13mins long and will be played following the 8.15pm feature.
