A World Not Ours by Mahdi Fleifel (UK / Lebanon / Denmark, 2012, 93 min.). A World Not Ours immerses us in Ain el-Helweh, a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon. At the heart of the film is Fleifel's relationship with his friend Abu Eyad. Fleifel doesn’t live at the camp and can leave when he pleases, but Eyad must remain — an inequity that makes their friendship both extra precious and susceptible to tension. “Fresh and engaging… a persuasively heartfelt, atmospherically immersive experience,” The Hollywood Reporter. In Arabic and English with English subtitles.
