Eden Plays to Rave Reviews at Hava Nashira Songleading Conference
The film played on Memorial Day weekend to a packed house at reknowned Jewish songleader's workshop in Oconomowoc, WI. Participants described the experience as, "blown away", "fierce", "the real symbol visually of Sukkot", "people left full and changed, motivated and moved", "the most beautiful animation they've ever seen."

An Amazing Evening, A Very Special Reason
Dec. 7, 2013
On December 7, 2013, Road to Eden became "Road to Ethan". We gathered together at Goldman Union Camp Institute (GUCI) in Zionsville, IN. GUCI is a place with very special roots for Doug and Dan and featured prominently in the film. On this night, we were gathered together to raised funds for Ethan Kadish and the HelpHopeLive Great Lakes Catastrophic Injury Fund. Ethan was critically injured last summer at camp after being struck by lightning on the camp athletic field. If you would like to contribute to this most worthy cause, click the button below for more information.
After the world premiere in Scottsdale, Doug & Dan took RTE to two wonderful towns featured in movie: St. Louis, MO and Dothan, AL. It was so wonderful to be back and to share our passion project with them!
