A World Not Our Own + Xenos


The Israel Palestinian Film Series Presents: A World Not our Own + Xenos

A World Not Ours is an account of one family's multi-generational experience living as permanent refugees. Director Mahdi Fleifel grew up in the Ain el-Helweh refugee camp in southern Lebanon, established in 1948 as a temporary refuge for exiled Palestinians. Today, the camp houses 70,000 people and is the hometown of generations of Palestinians. In Xenos the filmmaker follows the story of  Abu Eyad, who journeys from the camp to Europe joining the millions of migrants struggling to get by.
