On August 10th the documentary A World Not Ours will be screened at Open Air Cinema 2016 at Humanity House in THe Hague.
This unique, intimate and at times comical documentary offers a glimpse into the lives of Palestinian refugees in the Ain el-Helweh (‘sweet spring’) camp in Lebanon, where seventy thousand refugees live on a few square kilometres.
Filmmaker Mahdi Fleifel spent much of his youth there, but when violence against the Palestinians flared up, he and his family departed for Denmark. Every couple of years he returns to the camp to capture the lives of friends and family on film. The result is a cheerful and touching video diary. The central element of the story is his friendship with Abu Iyad. Both of them are passionate about football and love to discuss Palestinian politics.
