“Hummus the Movie!” follows the story of three hummus restaurateurs in Israel – their struggles and accomplishments – and the magic that comes from a simple recipe in their hands. Secret recipes, a Guinness World Record and the power of one simple food to bring Muslims, Christians and Jews together… in the Middle East, America and around the world.
“The Real Fauda” is a 2018 BBC documentary film that explores the background reality of the TV Series with behind the scenes access to Season 2. Directors Oren Rosenfeld and Jane Corbin were granted exclusive access to the clandestine operatives and organization of the Yamas. The documentary delves into the secretive world of the real life operatives, and how closely the show mirrors the reality.
Join us for a Q&A with film director, Oren Rosenfeld (live from Israel!) to discuss the making of the “Hummus the Movie!“, the meaning of hummus to the Middle East and beyond and his latest deep dive into the Arab-Israeli conflict in his BBC documentary “The Real Fauda“.
