IRC Refugee Film Festival: A World Not Ours


The International Rescue Committee in San Diego's annual Refugee Film Festival is going Virtual once again in 2022! We are bringing three award-winning documentary films and engaging conversation to your home on May 12, 19 and 26 at 6pm PST | Q&A at 7:30 PM.

A World Not Ours is an intimate, humorous, portrait of three generations of 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 the same 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.
