Madman Films are giving 5 of our lucky readers a double pass to a special advance screening of CAPHARNA‹M, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

The screening will take place on Monday 4th February, 2019 at Dendy Newtown (evening session - arrival at 6pm).

CAPHARNA‹M tells the story of Zain, a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the "crime" of giving him life. The film follows Zain, a gutsy streetwise child as he flees his negligent parents, survives through his wits on the streets, takes care of Ethiopian refugee Rahil and her baby son, Yonas, being jailed for a crime, and finally, seeks justice in a courtroom.

The film was made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters whose lives closely parallel their own. CAPHARNA‹M is a film with an expansive palette: without warning it can ignite with emotional intensity, surprise with unexpected tenderness, and inspire with flashes of poetic imagery. Although it is set in the depths of a society's systematic inhumanity, CAPHARNA‹M is ultimately a hopeful film that stirs the heart as deeply as it cries out for action.

To go into the draw to win a double pass to the preview screening, all you have to do is send an email titled 'CAPHARNA‹M' to competitions@weekendnotes.com and let us know in 25 words or less why you want to see this acclaimed film.

5 lucky winners will be drawn on 25 January 2019 and notified by email.

CAPHARNA‹M - Only In Cinemas February 7.
