No Promised Land

A film by Raphael Bondy

Synopsis

The life of four young Jewish Ethiopians and the identity crisis of the Israeli-Ethiopian community, which is still waiting for social recognition in Israel: For two generations now, their dream of belonging has not been fulfilled. Like all Israelis, they attended compulsory military service and speak Hebrew fluently. But they haven't found a home. In Ethiopia they were the Jews, in Israel they are the blacks. Their everyday reality is marked by exclusion and crises of meaning. Now, demonstrations on the street and personal commitment raise hope for a better future.
