Promised Land Screening

Free Screening — Saturday, May 19th at 6:30 PM

Israel is a country that is loved, hated, and often misunderstood by much of the world. Who really belongs there? Why is Jerusalem so important? Why do some believe in a messiah who will put things right? Amidst this seemingly endless battle over land and religion, surfing has emerged as an escape from the controversy. Promised Land: Israel Through the Eyes of Surfers is a unique look at this ancient place through the lives of two friends from different faiths, brought together by their love of the oceans that separate them.

The screening will be followed by interviews with producer Bryan Jennings, Rabbi Barney Kasdan and director Todd Morehead.
