CineCulture presents ‘The Promise’ Sept. 29

CineCulture presents “The Promise” at 5 p.m., Friday, Sept. 29, in the Peters Education Center Auditorium at the Student Recreation Center (5010 N. Woodrow Ave.) “The Promise” tells the story of two men, one Turkish and the other Armenian, who fall in love with the same woman while in Constantinople in 1914, just before the Great War. As the Turks form an alliance with Germany and the Ottoman Empire turns violently against its own ethnic minorities, their conflicting passions must be deferred while they join forces to survive. Carla Garapedian, the film’s associate producer, will lead the post-screening discussion following the 133-minute film, rated PG-13. This presentation is co-sponsored by the Armenian Studies Program. All CineCulture events screened on campus are free and open to the public. Parking is free after 4 p.m. on Fridays.
