310 Chestnut Street
Wilmington, NC 28401
The annual Wilmington Jewish Film Festival at Thalian Hall features a screening of Promise at Dawn, which chronicles the extraordinary life Romain Gary. An adaptation of his best-selling autobiographical novel, the film explores his difficult childhood in Poland and his adolescence in southern France, moving on to his career in the air force in Africa during World War II. And yet he owes this relentless enterprise to live a thousand lives, to become a great man and a famous writer, to his mother Nina.
