It's another double-giveaway week, and we begin with a window into a rarely seen world.
Director Maysaloun Hamoud's remarkable debut feature, In Between, is an energetic drama about three strong young Palestinian-Israeli women, sharing a flat in Tel Aviv. Existing flatmates Leila, a party animal and lawyer from a secular Muslim family, and Salma, a DJ who has yet to come out as a lesbian to her Christian family, are joined by Nour, a conservative Muslim recently moved to the city.
The three outsiders form a strong friendship, supporting each other as they navigate the changing views on womanhood in a traditionally conservative society. Assured and vibrant, In Between is a first-of-its-kind portrait of the unbearable daily duality of contemporary Israeli women, caught in between their hometown traditions and the modern values of a big city.
(There are some fascinating tales behind the film's production: we recommend reading this article.)
In Between opens in NZ cinemas on August 24, and we have 5 double passes to give away.
To enter the draw, just watch the trailer and answer this simple question: What does Leila's boyfriend ask her to stop doing?
