In Between | Maysaloun Hamoud 2016
Film runs for 1 hour, 39 minutes, including 4 ad-breaks.
From The Guardian … This bittersweet debut feature from Maysaloun Hamoud is a spiky treat, an empowering tale of three Palestinian women living in Tel Aviv, each fighting their own battles for independence and fulfilment. Balancing tragicomic relationship blues with sharp socio-political observation, Hamoud’s slyly subversive drama draws us deep into an often hidden world. As the title suggests, these women occupy a liminal space, caught between freedom and repression, religion and secularism, the past and the future. … Arabic with English subtitles.
