Sabeel Center is proud to present its Family Movie & Discussion Night series.
One of the Center’s strategic objective is to bring the community together. To that end, we encourage our audiences to join us every 3rd Friday of a month with members of their families for a lively and meaningful discussion across generations. The maximum number of registrants is deliberately kept at 30 to facilitate such an interaction.
Discussion materials will be emailed to registered attendees to enhance their viewing experience at the event and also prepare them for the discussion.
Please see below the event details, the program agenda, and links to other evenings in the series.
Sabeel Center is thankful to Alchemiya for making this documentary available to us for the benefit of our community.

Enjoy your Meal! tracks down the origin of a meal prepared by renowned chefs. The film traces not only where the ingredients come from, but stresses the impact of their production on local life. A visit to the land where they are grown shows the reality and how it brings people to desperate actions. Many people in the food industry work hard and try to make a living, mostly without even realizing the long-term impact of this industry on others and the environment. The food on our plate tells a bigger story than we initially know. A creative documentary on how food changes the world.
