"This choice is a big victory for street children who took part in this film," the Lebanese director told Reuters on Tuesday (January 22) after announcing a list of the top five films.

In his film "Capernaum", Labaki uses street children to tell the story of a 12-year-old boy who tries to deal with the marriage of his sister when he arrives. The film filters the reality of the marginalized childhood on Lebanese soil and the fate of abandoned children .

The film "The Fathers and Sons" by director Syria Talal Dirki entered the final list of Oscars in the best documentary category. US authorities do not issue entry visas for directors who currently live in Germany but return in mid-January.

In the latest list of the best feature documentaries, two came from England and two from the United States.

It is hoped that the names of winners will be announced for each Oscar category in the first ninety at the ceremony on Sunday, February 24 in Hollywood and broadcast by the American network "ABC" in the air in most parts of the world.
