Lebanese Drama Capernaum : a tribute to a street kid

the Large eyes of children, Cello Elegy, Slow Motion: It is fast skeptical of such flavor enhancers for a story that plays in the misery of Beirut: the story of Zain, the must be no child because the parents are overwhelmed with the poverty. The skepticism is also fast, because this Film is balancing on the line between reality and fiction, about the so much discussed because of the Causa Relotius, Robert Menasse and Takis Strangler's "Stella"-novel. This is a Film with hard documentary view, and "beautiful" filmed in Total, with picturesque aerial shots of the Slums in the Lebanese capital, together with the car tire on the plastic tarpaulin roofs? With performers who have experienced what you play?

Yes, "Capernaum" remains an integer, in spite of the large eyes of children. Because the camera occupies only rarely is the bird's-eye view, and rather in the dusty road, moving, eye-to-eye with the maybe twelve year old hero. She is so overwhelmed, restless, so, so breathless as Zain. The is soon in court, because of a violent act, and then again. "I accuse my parents, because you have put me in the world," says the Boy. A monstrous set.

"Capernaum" tells the story of how it comes to the charges. How is it that Zain and his many brothers and sisters do not have any papers, that he does exist, officially, because the parents can't afford to register the children. As he toils for a few coins, Were discharged, the cylinder drags. As the child is asleep char on a mattress, home-made vegetable juice at the curb and sold in the "drug business" for the adults helping. You are dealing with pain pills water.

Zain tries in vain to prevent his eleven year old sister is sold off to Assad, his employer, the rents, the hovel in which the family resides. He reaches for the knife, before the anger over the brutality of adults. And the other children in the school bus from the corner of the eye, a longing without any hope.

In Cannes, the Film's standing ovation

Zain received runs away from home and a device to Rahil, an Ethiopian, hiding illegal at the amusement Park works, and their small son Yonas in the shopping cart. With the two he's living now in the Slum, taking care of Yonas, keeps him in good spirits with drumming and singing food singing and painstakingly procured.

"Capernaum" is the third feature film by the Lebanese Director Nadine Labaki. It was premiered in 2018 at Cannes and a 15-minute ovation celebrated. In the end, he won the prize of the Jury. The story could also play in Rio, Mumbai or a refugee camp somewhere in Europe, it is so monstrous as Zains charge. A twelve-year-old must take care of a hardly two-year-old, feeds the small Yonas with sugar and ice cubes, tie him up in the Emergency with a rope at the foot. He knows it from his own family. Or he pulls him on a Skateboard with a fixed gezurrtem cooking pot through the streets, a schepperndes Team in search of the mother.

Zain gives his little brother to smuggling

Zain knows how to help, until he no longer knows how to help. Up from the water faucet only brown broth, and one day, even the corrugated iron shed blocks is added dropwise: her miserable "home". Zain, he also has to Achern Yonas is now one of these men, the beat from the misery of Profit. A guy who promises to get Zain to Europe.

A dream. If a child dies, it has natural causes, says the street vendor girl and explains to Zain, as you can distinguish in between cars to the female customers on the basis of jewelry. Europe remains a dream.

street children. Child labour. The trafficking of children. Illegal migrants, the pecking order of misery, in the Philippines more "value" than Ethiopians inside: Nadine Labaki has researched the case of the Poorest of the poor, in youth prisons and reformatories. Your main actor Zain al Rafeea, a refugee boy from Syria, has now emigrated to Norway with his family and goes to school there. Yordanos Shiferaw from Eritrea, the role of Rahil, grew up in a refugee camp in Ethiopia, tried to come to Lebanon and was arrested during the shoot, actually.

Labaki cast out of the street, in the slums. A judge plays the judge, the Director appears briefly as Zains lawyer. In this way, you is Zain to the side, she explains, and the Film allies.

Capernaum, Capernaum, a city in the Bible. A fishing village on the Northern shore of the lake of Galilee, a border town that was destroyed by the earthquake. A place of Chaos. The audience sits on the dock in "Capernaum". Because the world in the 21st century. Century, it allows that children are hopelessly made to be a commodity. You have no right to a Childhood. At the end of Zain smiles a single Time. It is for his passport photo.
