Maleny Film Society Presents – Capernaum

August 31 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

126 Mins | Country: Lebanon | Drama | General Screenings

Movie Starts at 7:15 pm

This award-winning Lebanese film tells the heart-wrenching story of Zain, a twelve-year-old refugee boy who leaves his negligent parents and faces the daunting challenge of surviving by his wits on the streets of Beirut. Featuring outstanding performances by its non-professional actors, this emotionally powerful and confronting film highlights the harsh realities faced by so many dispossessed and displaced refugees trapped in poverty with scant opportunity to escape to a better life, facing an indifferent social system and vulnerable to those wanting to take advantage of them. Opening with a courtroom scene in which Zain, charged with a violent crime, tries to sue his parents for the “crime” of bringing him into the world, the film portrays the harrowing path that has led Zain to reach the courtroom.
