It exposes misconceptions both about the nature of nonviolent resistance and about how it is currently being employed by Palestinians in their struggle against the occupation of the West Bank. The film portrays acts of nonviolent resistance in East Jerusalem and its environs.

Promises


hat is it really like to live in Jerusalem? Promises offers touching and fresh insight into the Middle East conflict when filmmakers Shaprio, Goldberg and Bolado travel to this complex and charged city to see what seven children — Palestinian and Israeli — think about war, peace and just growing up. Living within 20 minutes of each other, these children are nevertheless locked in separate worlds. Through candid interviews, the film explores a legacy of distrust and bitterness, but signs of hope emerge when some of the children dare to cross the checkpoints to meet one another
