Hummus! The Movie
Director: Oren Rosenfeld | Israel | Documentary | 72 mins | English, Arabic and Hebrew w/ English subs

"The film keeps a feel-good vibe throughout its duration, while subtly hinting at some of the key challenges Israeli society is facing. Just don't expect to get a confirmation on who actually invented hummus. That, it appears, will remain an eternal question." - The World Weekly

An eclectic, touching film about hummus, the delicious super food sweeping across Europe and America. Secret recipes, a Guinness World Record and the power of hummus to bring Muslims, Christians and Jews together - in the Middle East, America and around the world.
