In Between

MA15+ Drama

“Sparkling, taboo-breaking… an end to stereotyped Palestinian women.” - The Hollywood Reporter

Layla, Salma and Nur share an apartment in the vibrant heart of Tel Aviv. Layla, a criminal lawyer with a wicked wit, loves to burn off her workday stress in the underground club scene. Salma, slightly more subdued, is a DJ and bartender. Nur is a younger, religious Muslim girl who moves into the apartment in order to study at the university.

Nur is both intrigued and intimidated by her two sophisticated roommates. When her conservative fiancé visits, he is horrified by her secular friends, entreating her to hasten their marriage, leave Tel Aviv, and assume her rightful role as a wife. She refuses, and his violent rebuttal leaves all of the women shaken.

In Between is a story of female friendship, and the fierce bond that comes from shared gender, background, and hopes. An extraordinary film that depicts the complexities of contemporary femininity.


Produced by Shlomi Elkabetz (Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem); In Between screened to critical acclaim at San Sebastian Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, and won Best Debut Film at the 2016 Haifa International Film Festival. Nominated for highest twelve 2017 Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars), including Best Picture and Best Director.
