Foreign Language: In Between
Spiky, sharp and funny, first-time filmmaker Maysaloun Hamoud’s In Between tells the story of three Palestinian women living together in Tel Aviv, feeling out their roles as women. Navigating modernity and tradition—arranged marriages, queer desires, smoking, drinking and experimenting with drugs are all up for negotiation.
Making waves since its release last year, In Between took home awards at Toronto International Film Festival and San Sebastián, while Hamoud herself was honoured with a Young Talents Award at Cannes.
“In Between,” Ms. Hamoud’s debut feature, is an unusually welcoming and engaging film, inviting you to become a part of the circle of friends it depicts with such energy and warmth.” – The New York Times
Women in Film
In the centenary year of the 1918 suffrage act, celebrating women’s voices has never been more important. With this in mind, we present a season dedicated entirely to women in film. All the films in this season are directed or co-directed by women, and most are female-focused in their narrative.
