Between Heaven and Earth Continues Screening at Zawya Cinema for the Sixth Consecutive Week


Palestinian film Between Heaven and Earth by Director Najwa Najjar will continue screening for the sixth week in a row at Zawya Cinema. This comes after the massive success upon the filmÂ’s release in Egypt, at the beginning of December, 2020.

A thirty-something couple, Salma and Tamer, have been married for the past five years and living in the Palestinian Territory. The first time Tamer is ever given a three-day permit to cross the Israeli checkpoint, is to file for divorce in the courts in Nazareth. At the courthouse, they are confronted with a staggering discovery about the past of TamerÂ’s father; a secret which sends Salma and Tamer spinning on an emotional road trip exploring the loss and betrayal of the past, and of themselves.

Written and directed by Palestinian filmmaker Najwa Najjar, the film is produced by Ustura Films, in co-production with Paul Thiltges Distributions (Luxembourg) and Oktober Films (Iceland). MAD Solutions handles the filmÂ’s Arab world distribution.
