A World Not Ours is an intmate, humorous, portrait of three generations of exile in the refugee camp of Ain el-Helwah, in southern Lebanon. Bases on wealth ofpersonla recordings, family archives, and historical footage, the film is a sensitive and illuminating study of belonging, friendship, and family.
Filmed over more than 20 years by multiple generations of the same family, A World Not Ours is more than just a family portrait; it is an attenpt to record what is being forgotten, and mark what should not be erased from collective memory.
Admission is free and seating is first come first serve basis.
