‘Breaking Bread’ Introduces A-Sham Food Festival in Israel

In Haifa, Israel, the annual A-Sham Festival brings together Arab and Jewish chefs to showcase their traditional dishes and promote understanding in the kitchen. It was created by Dr. Nof Atamna Ismaeel, a microbiologist and winner of a popular Israeli reality chef show who identifies as Arab, Israeli and Palestinian. With “Breaking Bread,” documentary filmmaker Beth Elise Hawk captured the attention of the festival in 2017 and 2018 with appropriately gripping footage. The film’s highlight shows how chefs from different backgrounds, religions, and cultures can collaborate. “When I founded the festival of A-Sham, I didn’t mean Israel, I didn’t mean Palestine,” Dr. Ismaeel said in the trailer for documentaries. “I don’t believe there’s room for politics in the kitchen.”

“Breaking Bread” premieres Friday at Quad Cinema, quadcinema.comand will be shown on Sundays and Tuesdays at JCC Manhattan, mmjccm.org.
