The 21%: The Lives of Arab Citizens of Israel | March 22

Mar 22, 2020 11:00am - 2:00pm

The Greater Washington Forum on Israeli Arab Issues and the Edlavitch DCJCC are proud to present the 10th annual film festival, The 21%: The Lives of Arab Citizens of Israel, an in-depth exploration of the daily lives and challenges of Arab Citizens of Israel.

The program will feature the DC premiere of Breaking Bread, an award-winning documentary about Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel - the first Muslim Arab to win Israel's MasterChef – and her quest to make social change through food. The film gives an inside look at the A-sham Arabic Food Festival she founded in Haifa where pairs of Arab and Jewish chefs collaborate on mouthwatering dishes.

Following the film, join us for an audience talk-back with the filmmaker, Beth Hawk, and Gazala Halabi, a celebrity Druze chef from Israel and a “shuk” featuring Israeli food from various restaurants and caterers as well as NGOs working to build a shared society in Israel.
