In January, the American media mogul tweeted out her appreciation of the film and praised the director's work. Earlier this week, Winfrey invited Labaki and her husband, musical composer and producer Khaled Mouzanar, for lunch at her house.
The TV host posted a photo of the casual hang-out on Instagram, captioning it:
"Look who came for lunch director extraordinaire @nadinelabaki and her producer husband Khaled. I love their movie #Capernaum so much. If you get the chance, see it!"
On Tuesday, Labaki also shared the photo with her followers on Instagram, in which she thanked the American star for her kind gesture and invited her to visit Lebanon.
"My queen Oprah. This moment spent in your home talking about life and the ways to change the world will always be one of those moments Khaled and I will remember forever," the filmmaker wrote in her caption.
"Thank you for allowing this beautiful moment to happen and thank you for the love and support to our #Capernaum. I hope the next time we meet we ll be having breakfast in Lebanon our home and we ll be having the beautiful cedar mountains as a background," she added.
Winfrey isn't the only international celebrity to express her love for Capharnaüm, several others including Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, and Josh Brolin have also praised it. The film - which was released on Sept. 20 - tells the story of a child who struggles to survive and sues his family "for giving him life in the first place."
He was not registered at birth, as his parents could not afford the fees required to do so. He exists, but not on paper. He has no I.D. card - meaning he is unable to get a passport, attend school, or get medical assistance.
