From 5-8 November 2015, India’s most alternative, coolest and most eclectic film festival will descend on the multi-cultural, multi-ethnic town of McLeod Ganj in Dharamshala. Tittled as Dharmashala International Film Festival 2015 (DIFF) this will showcase a careful selection of features, documentaries, shorts and animation films, representing the best in contemporary independent cinema. As a part of this film festival, they are doing a series of pre-fest screenings in various cities.
Under this pre-fest series Bangalore International Centre in Collaboration with Dharmashala International Film Festival 2015 had arranged the screening of a film “A World Not Ours” directed by Mahdi Fleifel, on Thursday, 1st October, 2015 at 6.00 PM.
The film “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.
A large number of audience attended the screening.
