The Promise, the historical drama that stars Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac and tells the story of the Armenian Genocide in Turkey at the outset of World War I, is the latest film to screen at the Vatican.
Director Terry George was on hand in Rome for the screening, along with castmembers Shohreh Aghdashloo and James Cromwell.
The Survival Films feature has been on a world tour, of sorts.
The London premiere was attended by international human rights lawyer Amal Clooney and her husband, George, who has been an outspoken advocate of the movie, which seeks to educate audiences about human atrocities and the dangers of denialist narratives.
All the proceeds from The Promise‘s theatrical run will be given to nonprofit organizations, including the Elton John AIDS Foundation and other human rights and humanitarian groups.
The Promise hits theaters in the U.S. on April 21.
