Conversations with Women in Film: In Between (15) + ScreenTalk with director Maysaloun Hamoud
Thu 21 Sep 6.30pm, Cinema 2

This compelling drama follows the lives of three Israeli-Palestinian women sharing an apartment in Tel Aviv. Looking at female relationships in the modern era the film follows lawyer Laila (Mouna Hawa), aspiring DJ Salma (Sana Jammaliah) and student and wife-to-be Nour (Shaden Kanboura) as their lives begin to take shape. 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.

Maysaloun Hamoud’s remarkable debut feature film has already enjoyed great success and won numerous awards at the various film festivals where it has played including Toronto International Film Festival, San Sebastian Film Festival and the Cannes Film Festival where she was awarded the prestigious Kering Foundation Young Talents Award specially selected by internationally renowned actress Isabelle Huppert. The film has just been nominated for 12 Ophirs, the Israeli equivalent to the BAFTAs.

She will discuss the themes of the film, the reception it has received and her experience as an Israeli-Palestinian female director with Gali Gold (Barbican Cinema Curator) following this special preview screening.
