A World Not Ours

★★★★ 'a fascinating window into a world often distorted and oversimplified, this is informative, stimulating and moving stuff' Total Film
'Heartbreaking and hilarious, personal and political, humble and yet huge' Little White Lies

A World Not Ours is an intimate, and often humorous, portrait of three generations of exile in the refugee camp of Ein el-Helweh, in southern Lebanon. Based on a wealth of personal 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 attempt to record what is being forgotten, and mark what should not be erased from collective memory.
