Lowell National Historical Park Visitor Center
246 Market Street, Lowell
Presented in partnership with Moses Greeley Parker Lectures
Experience a culinary journey to learn the history behind the delicious, nutritious superfood that has the power to bring Muslims, Christians and Jews TOGETHER — in the Middle East, America, and around the world! The Lowell Film Collaborative is PROUD to partner once again with Moses Greeley Parker Lectures to co-present another marvelous FREE film event!
Come join us for “HUMMUS! THE MOVIE, where we’ll meet three main characters — a hard working Muslim woman, an ever-smiling Jewish restauranteur, 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!
We’ll also accompany Olivier, a French Benedictine Monk, on his search for the ultimate, tastiest Hummus, as well as Aluf Abir, a hip hop musician and 6th Dan black belt, who has some pretty wacky views on the geopolitical power of chickpeas!
Hummus! The Movie 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 23,042 pounds! 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!
