Around the World features critically acclaimed, international, independent films and is sponsored by Rehoboth Beach Film Society, Lewes Public Library, and Movies at Midway.

Before Their Eyes is a moving drama about ten-year old Gulistan and her younger brother Firat who live happily with their parents in the heart of Turkish Kurdistan. Suddenly tragedy strikes when their mother and father are shot down by paramilitary gunmen before their eyes.
Traumatized and orphaned, Gulistan and Firat try to care for their infant sister, but their money soon runs out and they're forced onto the street. It is there that Gulistan meets the part-time escort Dilara. Accompanying her on a hotel call one day, Gulistan is shocked to discover Dilara's client is the murderer of her parents, and quickly devises a plan for revenge. [2009, Germany & Turkey, Runtime: 102 min., Not rated, In Kurdish with English subtitles]
