Capernaüm ("Chaos") tells the story of Zain (Zain al-Rafeea), a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the "crime" of giving him life. The film follows Zain as he journeys from gutsy, streetwise child to hardened 12-year-old "adult" fleeing his negligent parents, surviving through his wits on the streets, where he meets Ethiopian migrant worker Rahil, who provides him with shelter and food, as Zein takes care of her baby son Yonas in return. Zein later gets Jailed for committing a violent crime, and finally seeks justice in a courtroom.
This movie won audience choice in Calgary, but it is no walk in the park. Brutal and searing tragedy of poverty and life on the street. The children are more foul-mouthed than you will have ever heard ....and yet we are full of compassion and concern for these children. Drawn in to the world of young Zain we hope ....we hope....
