Title from container.

Originally produced as a documentary in 1974.

Special features: Susan Sontag's 1974 Vogue essay about making the film ; liner notes by film critic Ed Halter.

Promised lands is famed writer and critic Susan Sontag's sole documentary project, shot in Israel on the fly in the final days and immediate aftermath of the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Not only does the film scrutinize the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict, it also underscores the deepening divisions within Jewish thought over the very question of Palestinian sovereignty as well. It was banned by Israeli authorities upon its initial release.
