What is it really like to live in Jerusalem? PROMISES offers touching and surprisingly fresh insight into the Middle East conflict when Shapiro, 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. The film premieres nationally on P.O.V. Thursday, December 13, 2001 at 9:00 pm (check local listings) on PBS. An Independent Television Service (ITVS) Co-presentation and a Television Race Initiative (TRI) Selection.
