Southeast US Premiere

Breaking Bread

Directed by Beth Elise Hawk

USA-Israel | 86 minutes | 2020

English and Hebrew with English subtitles

In Breaking Bread, exotic cuisine and a side of politics are on the menu. Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel, the first Muslim Arab to win Israel’s MasterChef television competition, is on a quest to make social change through food. In an effort to affect change, she founded the A-sham Arabic Food Festival in Haifa, Israel, where pairs of Arab and Jewish chefs collaborate on local dishes. A film about hope, synergy, and mouthwatering fare, Breaking Bread illustrates what happens when people focus on the person, rather than her religion; on the public, rather than the politicians.

Director Beth Elise Hawk will be in attendance to introduce the film and participate in an extended conversation with the audience afterward.
