Another Road Home
After the Six Day War of 1967, Israeli filmmaker Danae Elon’s family moved to East Jerusalem. There, she was looked after by Musa, the family’s Palestinian caretaker for over twenty years, until she moves to America to attend film school. Years later, she attempts to track him down, starting with his 11 sons, some of whom live in New Jersey. In the process she realises how one-sided their relationship was; she barely has any autobiographical information to go off and her discussions with the sons are difficult. As she continues to get back in contact, the film shows us the challenges to human relationships created by the conflict between Israel and Palestine and the difficulty in reconstructing memory.
