Film director Nadine Labaki is pictured with UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Cate Blanchett at a UNHCR screening of her film Capernaum in London this week. Capernaum, which opens across the UK on February 22 with preview screenings on February 1, has received an Oscar nomination as Best Foreign Language Film, BAFTA nomination for Best Film Not In The English Language and won the Jury Prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. Capernaum is set in Beirut and tells the courageous and inspirational story of a 12-year-old boy who sues his parents for bringing him into a world of poverty. The role is played by Zain Al-Rafeea, a Syrian refugee.
