A festival favourite with critics and audiences all over the world, A World Not Ours is an intimate, humorous portrait of three generations in 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 director Mahdi Fleifel s 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.
Documentary dispatches from a refugee-camp build into an engagingly accessible chronicle of a friendship, a family and a place...Fleifel crafts a persuasively heartfelt, atmospherically immersive experience that does justice to the joys and hazards of this extreme environment --Hollywood Reporter
A doc that flips storytelling and Mideast-Arab cliches on their heads, while weaving an irresistible mood of amused melancholy --Variety

Brilliant movie about life for a Palestinian refugee in Lebbanon. It is a really good DVD would recommend it to to anyone who likes documentaries or interested in middle east, Lebbanon, Gaza, Palestine, israel or human rights in general. So glad I found it, amazing story!
