The award winning Promises documents the lives of Israeli and Palestinian children during a period of relative calm from 1997 to 2000. Through first hand interviews, Yarko, Daniel, Moishe, Mahmoud, Shlomo, Sanabel and Faraj, all aged between 11 and 13, tell their stories of growing up amid conflict and violence. Deeply insightful and compassionate, directors Justine Shapiro, BZ Goldberg, and Carlos Bolado’s film rises above the din of rhetoric, politics and jingoism, thus allowing these children to create and tell their own stories in a time when the need for voices and dialogue is more critical than ever.
This film is part of the 2001 Washington Jewish Film Festival.
