PHOENIX, AZ – May 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — GeoQuest Entertainment Group, Ltd. releases its first DVD worldwide on May 23, 2006. ANOTHER ROAD HOME by Danae Elon, award-winning Israeli filmmaker and daughter of renowned writer Amos Elon, portrays her quest to find Musa Obeidallah, the Palestinian man whose love and sacrifice profoundly influenced her life. Diverse media and audiences have lauded this powerful documentary because it brings to the screen a deep humanity about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and does not shy away from confronting its controversial themes.
“We have taken tremendous care in producing a DVD of the finest technical quality that also provides interactive discussion tools to stimulate provocative and meaningful dialogue,” said the company’s founder, Alex Cyrell. When theatrically released in North America by GeoQuest Entertainment, the film was met with critical acclaim, standing ovations, and impassioned Q&A sessions. It screened in Europe and the Middle East, and recently aired on the Sundance Channel.
