Breaking Bread

About The Film

In this foodie’s delight, innovative Arab and Jewish chefs work in tandem to foster social change via mouthwatering dishes and a shared love of cooking. The action centers on the city of Haifa, a model of multicultural coexistence, and the annual A-Sham Arabic Food Festival, founded by microbiologist Nof Atamna-Ismaeel, the first Israeli-Arab to win on Israel’s reality show MasterChef. Each chef puts a personal spin on traditional recipes handed down over generations, transforming flavors while political and religious differences are set aside. A treat for the senses, this delectable showcase of culinary heritage gives hope to the idea that collaboration in the kitchen could be a bridge to mutual understanding and lasting peace.
