Kathy Wazana’s They Were Promised the Sea is an intimate journey shot in Morocco, Israel-Palestine, and New York. Her research into her family origins in Morocco unleashed a complex web of questions about dual identity, political opportunism, and the challenges faced by those torn between Homeland and Promised Land.
