Complimentary tickets for
This weekend, April 28-30 

Dear Educator,

The Genocide Education Project (GenEd) invites you to see the new film The Promise at a theater near you, this weekend only. 

We’re matching educators with our generous supporters who would like to sponsor movie tickets for teachers interested in learning more about the Armenian Genocide through this groundbreaking film.

The Promise is the first major Hollywood dramatic feature recounting the history of the Armenian Genocide of 1915, perpetrated by the Turkish government. The film provides a unique educational opportunity to understand the greatest atrocity and human rights crisis of WWI, while opening a window onto the German and American presence in the Ottoman Empire, Armenian community life and relations with Turks, individual acts of humanitarian defiance by Turks, and the brave resistance battle that inspired a masterpiece novel giving hope to countless Jews during the Holocaust.  Starring Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, and Charlotte Le Bon, The Promise tells this history via a romantic rivalry complicated when the Ottoman Empire falls into war-torn chaos.

All proceeds from the film will benefit charitable and human rights causes, including support for the newly launched, The Promise Institute for Human Rights at UCLA School of Law.

Tickets are for Social Studies, Humanities/ELA teachers on a first-come, first-served basis, for a show at a theater of your choice between Friday, April 28th and Sunday, April 30th. (Theaters chosen must provide online, transferable ticketing services.)  Please fill out  this form  for your ticket.
