In Between

director: Bao Long Lý

year: 2023

You are worth as many people as the languages you speak. What if I speak two languages and was even introduced to two cultures from birth? Am I truly worth more people? This documentary movie delves into the part of identity given from birth for most people. Having two choices places me in between... rather than fully in either culture.

In Between stands out for its richly refined film language. Cinematically complex, this is a visually and rhythmically strong reflection on the experiences of people who are stuck in limbo, in the precarious space between two cultures.” – the expert jury of My Street Films Award 2023 (Viola Ježková, Tereza Tara, Martin Horyna)


Bao Long Lý studies at the Hello Gymnasium in Ostrava and, in addition to making videos and short films, he is also interested in photography and competitive debate.
