Description

Introduction:
Sabeel Center is proud to present its Family Movie & Discussion Night series for 2019.

One of the Center's strategic objective is to bring the community together. To that end, we encourage our audiences to join us every 3rd Friday of a month with members of their families for a lively and meaningful discussion across generations.

Discussion materials will be emailed to registered attendees to enhance their viewing experience at the event and also prepare them for the discussion.


Please see below the event details, the program agenda, and links to other evenings in the series.

Sabeel Center is thankful to Alchemiya (wwww.alchemiya.com) for making this documentary available to us for the benefit of our community.

Description : (from the Alchemiya website)

Breaking Bread is a slice-of-life documentary about a Korean-American family who invited an Iranian friend to make a final meal for their dying father. This poetic journey explores the interaction of different cultures through the celebration of an ordinary man. Through an intimate weaving of food and death. This travelogue-esque documentary provides a moving look at the realities we all face.

“...A poetic, cross-cultural examination of the universal themes of family and loss, captured with unblinking clarity.” – The Hollywood Reporter
