If your 4th of July isn’t booked yet, come to a Geneva movie Event: The Swiss première of Promised Land. Matt Damon has co-written his first film since the underground hit Gerry and the runaway surprise success Good Will Hunting, both directed by Gus Van Sant. This time they join forces to present a story of small-town life in Pennsylvania, as townspeople face the hardline sellers of gas fracking contracts. A thoughtful, well-acted film about personal choices and limits, with excellent camera and direction by Van Sant. To be followed by round-table discussion and debate on the issues raised, in English and French.
The film has no Swiss release schedule yet, so take advantage of this special showing. This free event sponsored by: Swiss Green Party – Geneva. Co-sponsored by Democrats Abroad Switzerland.
