Event description

Description

AIG have kindly offered to host a film and some refreshments for Opening Doors members to celebrate LGBT history month. The theme for the month is geography so there will be a screening of acclaimed 2017 film In Between which is set in Tel Aviv focusing on three Palestinian-Israeli women.

Please note: to attend this event you need to be an ODL member, or be over-50 and identify as LGBT.

More details on the film can be found below, or you can watch the trailer here https://youtu.be/GpUVQMDoewU

Tickets are limited so please only book if you are able to attend.

When devout university student Nour moves in with successful lawyer Laila and club DJ Salma, she is shocked by their partying. As Laila fights to retain her freedom in the face of a new relationship, Salma falls for beautiful trainee doctor Dounia, a romance she must hide from her family. Nour is set for an arranged marriage to Wissam, an exemplary member of the community, who may not be as respectable as he appears.

IN BETWEEN follows the lives of these strong, independent minded Palestinian-Israeli women in Tel Aviv. Away from the constraints of their families and enforced tradition, they find themselves ‘in between’ the free and unfettered lives they aspire to lead and the restrictions imposed on them by a blinkered society.

First-time director Maysaloun Hamoud’s honest depiction of the lives of ‘liberated’ Palestinian women in Israel earned her the first Palestinian fatwa in 70 years.
