BREAKING BREAD. Documentary. Directed, written and produced by Beth Elise Hawk. From Cohen Media Group. (Color, 2022, USA/Israel, 85 minutes, not rated) Featuring Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel, Shlomi Meir, Ali Khattib, Osama Dalal, Ilan Ferron, Salah Cordi. 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 exotic dishes like kishek (a Syrian yogurt soup), and qatayef (a dessert typically served during Ramadan). 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.
“A captivating and mouth-watering delight.” -- NYC Film Guru
