Capernaum presented by Ballroom Marfa

September 7 @ 7:30 pm

Ballroom Marfa presents A Triptych of Films About Migration that considers the spectrum of human migration; the difficulties faced by migrants and asylum seekers; and the forces behind mass population movements. Films include El Mar La Mar, Island of the Hungry Ghosts, and Capernaum.

Capernaum, directed by Nadine Labaki, tells the story of Zain, a Lebanese boy played by Syrian refugee Zain al Rafeea, who sues his parents for the “crime” of giving him life. Capernaum was made with a cast of non-professional actors whose roles closely parallel their own lives.
