Synopsis:

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.

A young Spanish director gets fired from his job at a broadcaster. Recovering his dream to make movies, he travels to India in “search” of his first feature film, only to discover that his real search isn’t in India but back home. Back in Madrid, however, things don’t exactly work out as expected. Exploring the line between documentary and fiction, Mapa is a road movie told in the first person about a young filmmaker who travels to India in search of a new “map” for love and life.
