About The Film

In director Maysaloun Hamoud’s remarkable feature debut, three Palestinian women sharing an apartment in the vibrant heart of Tel Aviv find themselves doing the same balancing act between tradition and modernity, citizenship and culture, fealty and freedom. One is a sharp-witted criminal lawyer who loves the underground club scene, another a DJ and bartender exploring her sexual identity while her parents hasten an arranged marriage for her, and the last, a young religious Muslim girl studying at university who is both intrigued and intimidated by her sophisticated roommates. Arab Israeli women live in a country that considers them not quite Israeli enough, and are part of a culture that views them as not quite Palestinian enough. Each struggles with tensions between contemporary and traditional family life. IN BETWEEN is a story about female friendship and the fierce bonds forged through shared gender, background, and hopes.

Plays with: AVE MARIA (short)
