TONIGHT: Middle East Film Series to Screen “Promises”

When: Tonight, October 11 at 6:00 pm

Where: Birge Hall, Room B-302

The Center for Middle East Studies invites all students to attend tonight’s screening of “Promises,” an Oscar-nominated documentary on the Israel-Palestine conflict. The film follows the journey of a filmmaker who meets seven children in Jerusalem–some from Palestinian refugee camps, others from Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Though they live only twenty minutes apart, the children have grown up in separate worlds. This award-winning documentary showcases their stories and a new generation’s perspective on the Israel-Palestine conflict.
