Acre is a short film which was written, filmed, and produced by the students of the Summer Help IN English Program (SHINE) Project run by the LEAP Program & Beit Atfal Assomoud, Shatila. The students who worked on this project are from the Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon.

This film shows the tragedy of the Palestinian refugee situation in Lebanon through protagonist, Henzallah (usually referred to as Handala). Henzallah represents old Palestine and possesses a reverent plight to not accept the tragic situation of dispossession and return back to Palestine. Loosely based off of Naji Ali's cartoon character, Handala comes from Old Palestine via the Sea and stumbles upon the Shatilla refugee camp.

The SHINE students from Shatila who produced the film wrote "The Film talks about Palestine and what happened to our country. It speaks about our right to return and our struggle as Palestinian Refugees. We love the community centers in Shatilla, our families, friends, food, and way of life. All of us wish to return to Palestine one day."
