Hi Everyone..
This is a discussion area for us to talk about 'Promises'.. an amazing documentary, allowing us to see through the eyes of seven Palestinian and Israeli children. I'd love to know your thoughts about this film. Were you inspired? If so, how? What did you learn and what were your favorite parts?

Looking forward to your thoughts :)

This is one of the great films to illustrate the near-at-hand possibility and imperative of face-to-face citizen relationships in the required citixen-part of any peace process.

I completely agree :)
Everything was spoken in the traditional hand me downs...until...they met each other with an open heart. Tears streamed down my face when they sat down to eat together. I felt Peace Pilgrim watching with me and at this particular scene, our emotions meshed in the direst depths of hope for world peace. Although the ending had little to cling to, the fact that they had broken through the tradition, within a small space of time...hope lives on.

Thank you for all your diligence, contributions, & willingness Yaron.


Patricia.. yes, when they sat down to eat it was a special moment :)

I really liked how they showed the baby at the end (covered with the message of peace). The DVD for this film (which could be picked up at also has bonus footage of the kids' journey to the academy awards in 2002, and an update of the kids in 2004. To me, this film sets such a good example and I just had to pass it along. Thank you so much for taking the time to watch it, and letting us know how it affected you.

And the picture you posted... sooo beautiful :)
