Storyline

Shortly after the Six-Day War in 1967, Danae Elon's highly educated parents, noted Israeli author Amos Elon, and former correspondent and literary agent Beth Elon, hired a Palestinian man named Musa, the father of eleven children, to take care of their six month old daughter on a daily basis. It was a job he would continue for the next twenty years until she was grown and he was able to save enough money to send all eight of his sons to America for education and career opportunities. The last time Danae saw Musa, in 1991, he proudly showed her the house he constructed in the Palestinian village of Battir. Then, against the mounting tensions of the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian Intifada, the two families lost track of each other. During that time Danae began to realize how much of an influence Musa had on her life and sought to reconnect with him. Her quest led her from her home in New York to Paterson, New Jersey, then to Battir in the occupied territories, and back to her ...

A Beautiful Journey
3 October 2006 | by CatalinaCougarSee all my reviews

This is an absolutely beautiful film. When I started to watch this, I obviously knew that it was going to in the direction of searching out answers, but I didn't realize how far the journey would go and full and expansive it would turn out to be. In a world so divided where every media report and news article is full of strife, conflict, violence, terrorism and division amongst people and nations, this film is such a pleasant departure from the direction that we are constantly reminded the world is heading in. The film does look at a lot of these issues and the filmmaker does ask, in her way, a lot of these questions, but ultimately, the beauty of this piece is in it's refusal to be part of that movement and instead be part of a better world.

Can't say it enough, really beautiful film. And what a wonderful character we get to meet through her eyes and her determination.
