Arab Film Series Online: Breaking Fast + Talkback
Set against the twinkling lights of West Hollywood, Breaking Fast is a romantic comedy that follows Mo, a practicing Muslim still reeling from heartbreak. When an all-American guy named Kal offers to join him in his nightly Iftars—the traditional meal eaten by Muslims during Ramadan—meal after meal, the two start to discover they have more in common than meets the eye.
Immediately following the screening, we are pleased to be in conversation with director Mike Mosallam.
