The promise

written and dir. by Peter Kosminsky
« Just as 18-year-old Londoner sets off to spend summer in Israel with her best friend Eliza, beginning her two year stint of National Service, she unearths an old diary belonging to her seriously ill grandfather. Intrigued by the life a man she barely knows, she takes the diary with her, and is stunned to learn of his part in the post-WWII British peace-keeping force in what was then Palestine. Left to her own devices when Eliza begins National Service in the Israeli army, Erin witnesses the complexities of life--for both Jews and Arabs--in this troubled land. And as her grandfather's story comes to life from the pages of the diary, Erin discovers the disturbing truths about his time in Palestine and the atrocities he witnessed during this time of the birth of Israel. As she learns more about her grandfather's experiences, she also starts to witness the complexities of life for both Jews and Arabs alike, but ultimately finds herself retracing his steps in order to fulfill a promise that he was unable to. » Réservation en ligne
