International Trailer for Nadine Labaki's Award-Winning 'Capernaum'

Capernaum Trailer

This is a story you’ve never seen before. An international trailer has debuted for the film Capernaum, also known as Capharnaüm, from Lebanon. Directed by actress-filmmaker Nadine Labaki, the film premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival (and won the Jury Prize there), and has also played at the New Horizons, Melbourne, Sarajevo, and Toronto Film Festivals, with a stop at the London Film Festival next. Capernaum takes place on the streets of Beirut, following a 12-year-old boy who decides to sue his parents for bringing him into the world. We follow him as he escapes and runs around, trying to survive by begging and stealing, showing us a disheartening, depressing side of the world we all tend to ignore. This was one of the best films I saw at Cannes this year, and I’ve been raving about it ever since the premiere. It’s an important film to see. ›››
