Academy Award-Nominated documentary film, "Promises" introduces us to seven Palestinian and Israeli children living only 20 minutes apart in a Palestinian refugee camp, a West Bank Israeli settlement, and East and West Jerusalem neighborhoods. Though filmed nearly 20 years ago (between 1997 and 2000), Promises remains relevant, informative and inspiring. It's an important film, and it is included in the Lincoln Public Schools' seventh grade curriculum.
