I just got one of those EDMGRB8KJF LCDs requires a 20 connector Premo-Flex Cable.
http://www.molex.com/pdm_docs/sd/210200225_sd.pdf

Molex makes cables for those connectors..  Still working on tring to find a distributor..  Newark is a supplier but they have non in stock.  Digikey carries the connectors but on the cable.

Molex calls the cables "Premo-Flex(TM) FFC Jumpers" molex part number: 0210200225
Possible Supplies:
      http://www.connectorpeople.com/partpages/Molex2-8.htm (PA, USA)
      Newark Electronics: Part: 55H668
And the connectors are called "FFC/FPC Connector" molex part number: 52746-2090
digikey part number for the connector is: WM5680TR-ND
but there currently out of stock.

Jayesh -

Do you think you could post some of your pictures or some hints on how to
accomplish the soldering? I spent a few hours this weekend trying to connect
wires to the Molex FFC connector with no success.  I also tried using a
0.5mm Schmartboard that I spotted at Fry's. Unfortunately the pins on the
connector don't seem to sit properly in the grooves on the Schmartboard and
I can't get the solder to connect.

Despite all that, I did find a new part on Digikey that seems like it might
be easier for me to work with:
