Promised Lands DVD
Writer-critic Susan Sontag's documentary examines the long-lasting battle between Israelis and Arabs in the wake of the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Sontag's exploration of internal Jewish conflicts about Palestinian sovereignty made Israel uncomfortable enough to ban the film when first released, and includes powerful imagery and appearances by writer Yoram Kaniuk and physicist Yuval Ne'eman. 87 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English, Arabic, and Hebrew; Subtitles: English (SDH). In English, Arabic, and Hebrew with English subtitles.
