Breaking Bread

USA/Israel, Feature Documentary, 2020, 85 min

Winner of an Audience Award at the Napa Valley Film Festival

Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel - the first Muslim Arab to win Israel’s MasterChef -- is on a quest to make social change through food. And so she founded the A-Sham Arabic Food Festival, where pairs of Arab and Jewish chefs collaborate on traditional and exotic dishes like kishek (a Syrian yogurt soup) and qatayef (a dessert typically served during Ramadan). A film about hope, synergy and mouth-watering fare, Breaking Bread celebrates unique cultural heritages and a common love of cooking, proving that there is no room for religion and politics in the kitchen. Subtitled.

Directed by Beth Elise Hawk
