A fun yet serious look at the power of food to unite people of diverse backgrounds.
In Hummus! The Movie, we meet three main characters— all from Israel— a hard working Muslim woman, an ever-smiling religious Jew, and a young Christian Arab on a restless quest for meaning. But despite their historical and cultural differences they all have one thing in common; a passionate love of Hummus! The film also spotlights “The World’s Largest Serving of Hummus” – the fiercely fought Guinness World Record title currently held by a Lebanese Hummus maker at a huge 23,042lb (10,451kg)!
But beyond the competition, beyond arguments over the best Hummus and even beyond religious and political divides, Hummus! The Movie tells the touching personal stories of the colorful men and women who simply live their lives and love their Hummus. 72 min.
