Recipient of a 10-minute standing ovation at Cannes, Capernaum (Chaos) tells the story of a Lebanese boy whose life is so hard, so despairing, that he sues his negligent parents for the “crime” of allowing him to be born. The film follows him from gutsy, streetwise child, to hardened 12-year-old “adult” surviving on the streets, to jail for a violent crime, to finally seeking justice in a courtroom. Shot without any professional actors and with raw cinematography, the film is a powerful statement about survival in the toughest and most heartbreaking of situations.
