Solid, Moriah forge distribution deal for WWII films

MUMBAI: Solid Entertainment, a leading distributor of factual programming, today announced that it has signed an exclusive two-year distribution deal with two-time Academy Award winning production company Moriah Films for five of their landmark documentaries.

Negotiated by Solid Entertainment founder and CEO Richard Propper and Moriah Films head Rick Trank, the deal includes worldwide broadcast, home video, and DVD rights and comes on the eve of the 60th anniversary (2005) of the end of World War II (WWII).

Solid Entertainments first time offering of such films as Genocide, the first Holocaust documentary to win an Academy Award, The Long Way Home, a second Academy Award winning documentary, In Search Of Peace, Liberation, and the recently completed Unlikely Heroes, comes at the right time to present relevant programming for this monumental anniversary.

The titles included in this deal are: Genocide, which is narrated by Elizabeth Taylor and Orson Welles is the story of the millions of men, women and children who fell victim to Hitler's Final Solution. A unique multi-image documentary, this programme combines historical narrative with actual stories of ordinary people caught up in the Nazi's reign of terror.

The Long Way Home is narrated by award-winning actor Morgan Freeman and is a riveting documentary which tells the story of Holocaust survivors in the years 1945-1948 engaged in the battle to rebuild their shattered lives and to recapture human dignity.

In Search of Peace has been narrated by Michael Douglas and chronicles the first two decades of Israel's existence, offering new insights on the origins of the Middle East conflict. Combining rare archival film and photos, In Search of Peace not only examines events in Israel, but their impact on other places as well - the Arab refugee camps, the General Assembly of the United Nations, Moscow, Paris, London, Buenos Aires, Cairo and Washington DC.

Liberation is narrated by Ben Kingsley and Whoopi Goldberg, and is a programme which focuses on the end of WWII as Hitler continued to persist on two fronts: fighting the allies attempting to liberate Europe and continuing the genocidal war against the Jews. This WWII documentary uses film footage, radio broadcasts, and period music gathered from archives around the world.

Unlikely Heroes, which is Moriah Films' latest release, is narrated by Kingsley and chronicles the untold stories of Jewish resistance and individual heroism throughout the Nazi Holocaust. Utilising never-before-seen film and photos discovered in European archives, this documentary shatters the myth that the Jewish people did not stand up to the Nazis.
