One Albanian man’s quest brings three men together in a journey that transcends borders, time and religion. Besa: The Promise reveals the little-known story of the Albanian Muslims who took Jews into their homes during WWII and saved thousands of lives. It is a true tale about exploration and discovery, Muslims and Jews, fathers and sons, faith and healing.
The 89-minute documentary Besa: The Promise will screen on January 6 and January 8 in the Washington D.C. Jewish Film Festival in Rockville, MD and Washington, DC. Tickets are available online.
