Promises

A-

A superb, Oscar-nominated portrait of seven Israeli and Arab children living in and around Jerusalem that takes on added emotional weight knowing what adults know: The thoughtful, agendaless documentary was shot between 1997 and 2000, and since then hostilities have only intensified. But for one moment, the patience of documentarians nurtured understanding about strangers accustomed to being enemies.
