In Between (2016)

  • Drama, LGBTQI
  • 1h 43m

Director Maysaloun Hamoud’s remarkable debut feature, In Between, is an energetic drama about three strong young Palestinian-Israeli women, sharing a flat in Tel Aviv.

Existing flatmates Leila, a party animal and lawyer from a secular Muslim family, and Salma, a DJ who has yet to come out as a lesbian to her Christian family, are joined by Nour, a conservative Muslim recently moved from to the city. The three outsiders form a strong friendship, supporting each other as they navigate the changing views on womanhood in a traditionally conservative society.

Assured and vibrant, In Between is a first-of-its-kind portrait of the unbearable daily duality of contemporary Israeli women, caught in between their hometown traditions and the modern values of a big city.
