A World Not Ours

Friday, June 13 - Thursday, June 19, 2014

“A doc that flips storytelling and Mideast-Arab clichés on their heads, while weaving an irresistible mood of amused melancholy” (Variety). If Woody Allen made a film about a Palestinian refugee camp, it might come out like A World Not Ours. Director Mahdi Fleifel grew up in the camp of Ein el-Helweh in southern Lebanon before his family moved to Europe. This film documents his trips back for a sensitive, funny and illuminating study of belonging, friendship and family. – DOC NYC
