For suggestions of places to go out

“Tamer and Salma”, the heroes of the film, accompany us with them in their car, in which they roam Palestine to end the crises related to the documents, those documents that are related to their history, which is by nature part of the history of Palestine, and on the way we find that the trip is a symbolic image to search for the Palestinian identity between these roads, that identity Which the enemy has been trying to obliterate for decades, and he may have succeeded in taking steps towards his goal, even if it is in the image of an Arab actor singing “Hava Nagela”, and his Arab sword has forgotten the years of glory. The film “Between Heaven and Earth” allows us to get to know other people and places that we may not know or have heard of before.

The film began its commercial screenings in Egypt through Zawya Cinema on Wednesday, and its director Nagwa Najjar is attending some shows due to her presence in Egypt as a member of the jury of the Cairo Film Festival.
