To mark the release of In Between on 29th January, we’ve been given a copy to give away on DVD.
In Between follows the lives of three strong, independent minded Israeli-Palestinian women sharing an apartment in Tel Aviv. Away from the constraints of their families and enforced tradition, they find themselves in between the free and unfettered lives they’re aspiring to lead and the restrictions still imposed on them by a blinkered society.
Laila (Mouna Hawa), a successful lawyer, craves the love of a good man who she thinks she s found in the apparently open-minded and handsome Ziad (Mahmood Shalabi). Salma (Sana Jammallieh) works at menial jobs in restaurants and bars hoping her long-held dream of being a DJ becomes a reality. In the meantime she falls for the beautiful trainee doctor Dounia but is forced to keep their lesbian relationship secret from her family.
