Screened February 4–24, 2022

​​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 dishes like kishek (a Syrian yogurt soup) and qatayef (a dessert typically eaten during Ramadan). A film about hope, synergy, and exotic fare, Breaking Bread illustrates what happens when people focus on the person, rather than her religion; ​on the public, rather than the politicians.

Joyous… A film that celebrates cuisine diplomacy.”
