Capernaum
121 min. Drama. R.

Sat, Feb 23 8:00 PM - Sat, Feb 23 10:01 PM (121 min)
Opens Friday, February 22 at the Michigan!
Oscar® nominted for Best Foreign and Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival! Nadine Labaki's Capernaum (Chaos) follows the journey of Zain, a gutsy, streetwise 12-year-old boy, as he flees his negligent parents and survives the dangers of the city streets by his wits. Along the way, he takes care of Ethiopian refugee and her baby son, ends up being jailed for a crime, and, ultimately, seeks justice in a courtroom against his parents for the “crime” of giving him life.
Capernaum was made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters whose lives closely parallel their own. Following her script, Labaki placed her performers in scenes and asked them to react spontaneously with their own words and gestures. When the non-actors's instincts diverged from the written script, Labaki adapted the screenplay to follow them. Presented in Arabic & Amharic with English subtitles.

Lords of Chaos
118 min. Biography/Drama. R.

Sat, Feb 23 11:35 PM - Sun, Feb 24 1:33 AM (118 min)

Legendary music video director (and founding member of influential early black metal band Bathory) Jonas Åkerlund’s take on the insular, troubled metal scene in Norway plays out as essentially a deep black comedy shot through with startling, visceral moments of violence. Inspired by the cult book of the same name, Lords of Chaos follows the birth and inevitable death of Mayhem – one of the original purveyors of True Norwegian Black Metal in the early 1990s.
Euronymous, the founder and guitarist for Mayhem, finds a kindred dark soul in Dead, the vocalist who crystalized the band’s sound. Despite Dead’s death fixation and self-destructive behavior, the band seems headed in the direction of stardom. That is until Dead’s extremely gory suicide and the introduction of new vocalist Varg Vikernes whose presence ultimately leads to a series of church burnings, more tragic deaths, and the destruction of the band.
