Linenhall Film Club continues its 2018 season with director Maysaloun Hamoud’s terrific debut feature In Between on Tuesday, January 23, at 8pm. This critically acclaimed film follows the lives of three strong, independent minded Israeli-Palestinian women sharing 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 are aspiring to lead and the restrictions still imposed on them by a blinkered society. Laila, a successful lawyer, craves the love of a good man, and she thinks she has found one in the apparently open-minded and handsome Ziad. Salma works at menial jobs in restaurants and bars hoping her long-held dream of being a DJ becomes a reality. The more traditional and reserved Nour is still studying for a degree and seeks a simple life. The three girls are rocked by a shocking series of events that will push their beliefs to the limit and change their lives forever.
Linenhall Film Club screens every second Tuesday. For full details about the Linenhall Film Club and its forthcoming programme contact the Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar, phone (094 ) 9023733, or see www.thelinenhall.com
