Lebanese filmmaker Nadine Labaki's most recent film, "Capharnaüm," earned an epic 15-minute standing ovation following its premiere during the Cannes Film Festival.
The massive acclamation came just a couple of days before the Cannes jury announces the prizewinners for 2018.
"Capharnaüm" was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or award, and it seems as though it just might take it home.
The film - which is Arabic for "a disorderly accumulation of objects" - tells the story of a child who is struggling 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.
On Saturday, the jury will announce the final winner of the Palme d'Or award.
According to IndieWire, if Labaki wins, she will become the second-ever female director to win the prize.
Labaki's films have made numerous appearances at the Cannes Film Festival, however, this would be the first time her work competes for the Palme d'Or.
In 2006, she directed and acted in her first feature film, "Caramel," which premiered at the Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival the next year.
In 2010, Labaki directed and starred in her second feature film, "Where Do We Go Now?," which also premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in the "Un Certain Regard" category in 2011.
But, "Capharnaüm" has certainly turned heads and melted hearts ... and the 15-minute standing ovation is proof.
