Promises is a 2001 documentary that features documentarian and Israeli-American B.Z. Goldberg as he interviews and becomes friends with Israeli and Palestinian children between the ages of 11 and 13. While the seven children live no more than twenty miles apart from each other, their world views could not be more different. Goldberg focuses on the experience of the children growing up in a world where conflict is an every day reality. Firsthand experience of violence and political extremism has altered the way many of the children view their neighbors, but when Goldberg begins inviting the children to play together, political barriers are ignored and bonds are formed. The featured children include Daniel and Yarko, two Israeli boys, Mahmoud, a Palestinian living in east Jerusalem, Sanabel, a Palestinian living in a refugee camp, and Shlomo, the son of a Jewish rabbi. Shot between 1995 and 2000, the film was nominated for a 2002 Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary.
