On Monday, August 19 at 6:30pm, Noblesville First’s Social Justice and Advocacy Team will continue its “Just Films” series in The Vine (Door #4/5). The evening will feature CAPERNAUM ("Chaos").
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, CAPERNAUM follows the journey of a clever, gutsy 12-year-old boy, Zain, who survives the dangers of the city streets by his wits. He flees his negligent parents, asserts his rights and takes them to court, suing them for the "crime" of giving him life. The film was made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters whose lives closely parallel their own.

Also, due to the film's length (2 hours 3 minutes), we will not host a subject matter expert to speak following the film this month.
The goal of these monthly film screenings is to showcase a film that provides new perspective, encourages conversation, and educates us on current environmental or social issues. Each screening will begin with an introduction, then we’ll dive into the film, and finish with 30 minutes of talk and discussion. Coffee, water and popcorn will be provided.
