The Bread We Break

Drawing on her Egyptian heritage, Miray Sidhom explores Egypt’s suppressed history of political uprising in THE BREAD WE BREAK. Weaving together memories of a childhood in Cairo, frank conversations with her mother, and archive footage, she questions bread’s cultural symbolism and fermentation as a metaphor for social change.
