7:00pm - In Between
2016 | 103 minutes | Narrative
Director: Maysaloun Hamoud

Two Palestinian women share an apartment in the vibrant heart of Tel Aviv. A stylish criminal lawyer with a wicked wit, Laila sheds her professional persona and releases any inhibitions in the city’s underground club scene. Her more subdued lesbian roommate Salma left her conservative Christian home and floats from job-to-job, working primarily as a bartender and DJ. They are joined by Nur, a religious Muslim, who moves into the apartment while studying at the local university. Her fiancé refuses to understand why she prefers to study and work over establishing their home. Together, the roommates  search for ways to live in the space in between their desired modern lifestyles and the pressures from their traditional communities.

Screening followed by Q&A with Maysaloun Hamoud and MK Merav Michaeli. 

Co-presented by Inter-Agency Task Force on Israeli Arab Issues and A Wider Bridge.
