AAWR is proud to become Community Partners with CIFF 40! Please join us in screening our partner film “Dough”
March 31, 2016 @ 6:25 pm - April 1, 2016 @ 11:35 am
CIFF recaps, “Nat is a Jewish baker desperately trying to save his family business. All his customers are moving or dying, and a ruthless developer wants to buy him out. Ayyash is a young Muslim immigrant trying to remove himself and his mother from poverty. He is looking for a cover job—something to legitimize the sudden big money he hopes to make working for a local drug supplier. When Nat’s apprentice leaves him, Ayyash gets the position. Soon he is secretly selling pot from the bakery. When a stash accidentally gets mixed into the dough, sales suddenly increase and new customers bloom. Ayyash sees a way to riches, while Nat believes the boy’s skills have turned things around and may save his business. Things naturally will unravel. But how they unravel, and the bonds that are broken and forged along the way, is the real secret ingredient of DOUGH. Witty and wise (shall we also say high-spirited?), this charming film aims for sharp-edged social commentary and rises to the occasion.” –C.R
