IN BETWEEN (2016, dir. Maysaloun Hamoud) follows the lives of three strong and independent-minded Israeli-Palestinian women who share 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 their country and their families.
