Jewish Film Festival: BREAKING BREAD | Closing Night Film

The 7th Annual Lindy CineMondays spring series ends with one of the most delectable films you’ll see all year!

Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel was a 33-year-old microbiologist from an Arab town in Northern Israel when she won the top prize in the fourth season of Israel’s MasterChef. Today, she is the founder and director of Haifa’s A-sham Arab Food Festival, an annual celebration of Arab cuisine inspired by traditional dishes from the Levant food culture. Bringing together leading Jewish and Arab chefs to collaborate on tasty new interpretations of their ancestors’ old world recipes, this mouth-watering documentary honors the roots of Arabic and Israeli cuisines and their unique cultural heritage. With a common love of food and a mutual desire to marry history with the flavors of today, these innovative chefs demonstrate why politics and religion have no place in their kitchens.
