No Promised Land

A film by Raphael Bondy

Synopsis

NO PROMISED LAND tells of the lives of four young Jewish Ethiopians and addresses the identity crisis of the Israeli Ethiopian community, which is still waiting for social recognition in Israel: Their dreams of belonging have not been fulfilled for two generations. Teacher Benny and fashion designer Lemlem immigrated to Israel with their parents. Social activist Inbar and stand-up comedian Shlomo were born in Israel. Despite the fact that they speak fluent Hebrew and served in the compulsory military service like all Israelis, their dream of belonging did not come true. Now, in the wake of growing demonstrations against police brutality, a new hope arises, for a life without discrimination.
