In Between screening
Carbon Arc's latest flick follows three roommates in Tel Aviv—one a criminal lawyer with a love of clubbing, one a DJ and one a younger, religious student new to the city. As the youngest roommate's husband-to-be sees the secular lives the women are leading, he attempts to whisk her away. Her refusal to leave her new life leaves all three women struggling to balance tradition with modernity. more deets
