In Between is a witty and buoyant comedic drama about three independent young Palestinian women living in Tel Aviv struggling to find their way through Arab-Israeli culture, nightlife, and identity. Maysaloun Hamoud’s debut feature is a dazzling and intelligent portrait of this often overlooked demographic. Caught between hometown tradition and big-city abandon, these women often pay a heavy price for what seems a given to many: the freedom to work, party, and choose their own lifestyle. Leila, a criminal lawyer from a bourgeois secular Muslim family, works during the day and parties at night. Her roommate Salma is a lesbian DJ from a “liberal” Christian family. When Nour, a pious Muslim girl, becomes their new roommate, things become even more complicated, bringing the three together as they find a way to survive with grace and humor. (Israel, 2016)
