Mahdi Fleifel, Director, A World Not Ours.
Danish director Mahdi Fleifel  presents the life of three generations in Ain al-Hilweh, the Palestinian refugee camp in south Lebanon where he grew up. More than 70,000 people have lived there for over 60 years in one square kilometre. Imbued with nostalgia and striking a wide range of emotional notes, filmmaker Mahdi Fleifel explores how the camp’s displaced people use the World Cup series to articulate their own ideas of home, community, victory and hope.
