They Were Promised the Sea is a myth-shattering documentary that investigates the 1960's exodus of Morocco's Arab Jewish population to Israel, exposing the political manipulation that separated Jewish and Muslim communities living together for millennia. Visually stunning and musically rich, it links the events inextricably to the tragic dispossession and exile of the Palestinian people. Film showing followed by Q & A with Casablanca born filmmaker Kathy Wazana and conversation with Amirah Mirachi, Moroccan/Palestinian artist and educator.
