PROMISES follows Israeli-American filmmaker, B.Z. Goldberg through Palestinian refugee camps, Israeli settlements a d neighborhoods throughout Jerusalem where he meets Palestinian and Israel children who live 20 minutes apart but live in completely separate worlds.

Come learn about the physical, historical and emotional obstacles between them. Rather than focusing on political events, the children feature in PROMISES offer a refreshing, human and sometimes humorous portrait of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

"Groundbreaking....Full of hope, despair, and insight....personalized political conflict more powerfully than any film I have ever screened for my students."

Professor K. Samuelson, Stanford University, Department of Communication.

"Extraordinary! Intensely personal and insightful- a humanist's dream."
Julie Salamon, the New York Times

"Stunning and powerful! Should not be missed. Their acts of carmarderie transcend politics andethnicity."
