The genesis of ROAD TO EDEN may have been a small synagogue in the Florida Panhandle, but the road trip stops in downtown Phoenix for a special Passover performance screening at FilmBar at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8, 2015. The film explores musician Dan Nichols' travels through the deep South during the Jewish festival of Sukkot. Each day his journey challenges him with issues of homelessness, immigration, interfaith relations, environmental concerns, Middle East turmoil and civil rights, reminding us all that we're still trying to reach the "Promised Land" together. Scottsdale resident and Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival board member Doug Passon directed the feature-length documentary that tells the story of the inspirational journey of Nichols, a tour de force of modern Jewish music, who took his show on the road in 2011. Nichols' journey into America's Deep South winds through small communities with even smaller Jewish populations.

"The film is a celebration of hope, courage and joy, in the form of a Jewish rock-and- roll road trip," explains Passon, who will lead a post-screening question and answer session. "While rooted in Jewish thought and music, the film's message of striving for a better world for all humanity resonates and inspires no matter who you are or what you believe."
