THE PROMISE

(Starring Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, Charlotte LeBon. 2017. 133 min. Drama. Rated PG for thematic material, including war atrocities, violence, disturbing images. Directed by Terry George. Written by Terry George and Robin Swicord.)

From the Academy Award winning director of  Hotel Rwanda, Terry George, comes The Promise, a story of love, survival, and resistance during the little-known Armenian genocide of the early 1900s.   A love triangle develops amid racism, unrest, war, and displacement in the last days of the Ottoman Empire.

The release of The Promise earlier this year was opposed by those who still deny the very fact of the Armenian genocide.

This powerful film brings us face to face with this undeniable history, with potent warnings about the racial and ethnic hatreds of today.

 Sponsored by the Brandywine Peace Community.  Doors open at 6:30p.m. for light refreshments.  Optional group discussion about the film follows its screening.
