A docudrama about sex slavery in Israel is being screened at the Venice Film Festival. Amos Gitai’s “Promised Land” is one of 22 offerings this week at the prestigious event, which traditionally showcases independent and avant-garde movies. Gitai’s film follows a group of European prostitutes who are smuggled into Israel from Egypt and endure abuse at the hands of their pimps and clients.
