Cinematinee – Breaking Bread

For the first time in history, a Muslim Arab won Israel’s Masterchef competition – and now she is on a mission to create meaningful social change through food.

Dr Nof Atamna-Ismaeel is also the Founder of A-sham Arabic Food Festival, an annual culinary celebration in Haifa where Breaking Bread follows Muslim, Jewish, and Christian chefs, collaborating and creating together without any political boundaries – all for the love of food. Exotic dishes, mouth-watering cinematography, and an ideal that Nof freely admits is more than meets the eye.

Solving Middle Eastern peace with a little halva and hummus is a tall order, but breaking down barriers at the public level, not the political, starts with breaking bread.
