Free and Open to the Public: Film Screening of In Between.


Three independent young Palestinian gal pals choose a life of freedom in the vibrant heart of Israel while straining under societal expectations, in the taboo-breaking dramedy IN BETWEEN.

Fighting for the right to live on their own terms, with very singular personalities, the women share a Tel Aviv apartment away from their home villages. Ultra-chic criminal lawyer Laila (Mouna Hawa) and lesbian disc jockey Salma (Sana Jammelieh) spend their time hanging out in the city’s underground bars. Their bohemian, sexually-active lifestyle stands in sharp contrast to the decidedly more religious and conservative outlook of Nour (Shaden Kanboura), the third roommate and a university student. Struggling to be true to themselves while finding the right romantic partners, the developing sisterhood negotiates being Arab-Israeli in a predominantly Jewish society.
