UN Women Film Fundraiser: Breaking Bread

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

UN Women Aotearoa New Zealand is once again activating its 16 Days of Activism campaign, “Orange NZ” to End Violence Against Women and Girls. This annual campaign runs from the 25th November to 10th December 2021. 

We invite you to join us for a fundraising movie night on Thursday 2 December 2021 from 5.30pm at Light House Cuba, Wellington to see Breaking Bread.  Doors open at 5.30pm with nibbles and drinks and a fundraising raffle preceding the screening at 6.30pm.

Breaking Bread is a ‘docufilm’ about an Arabic female chef using food to break down political and religious barriers between Israel and Palestine. ​​Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel - the first Muslim Arab to win Israel’s MasterChef - is on a quest to make social change through food. And so, she founded the A-Sham Arabic Food Festival, where pairs of Arab and Jewish chefs collaborate on dishes like kishek (a Syrian yogurt soup), and qatayef (a dessert typically eaten during Ramadan). A film about hope, synergy and exotic fare, Breaking Bread illustrates what happens when people focus on the person, rather than her religion; ​on the public, rather than the politicians. 

Proceeds raised will go to Women’s Refuge New Zealand and the Kiribati Women & Children Support Centre

Please bring cash if you would like to participate in our raffle,  we have some amazing prizes thanks to some generous supporters including Antipodes!
