About the Movie
In the global media, extremes of religious, political, economic and cultural life command attention and skew perceptions of risk and reality. In the US especially, where local, regional and national news are emphasized to the near exclusion of international coverage (unless, disaster, spectacle or celebrity is concerned), the average citizen/consumer is ignorant or mal-informed about other peoples, places and systems of governance, economics and belief, unable to see through sensational representation to often commonplace reality. Our goal is to inform, educate and engage audiences in order to diminish the distortions of ignorance and fear on international understanding exchange. Dinner in the No-Go’s put a human face and a personal perspective on places we’ve been advised not to travel. And what better symbol of civilized exchange and intimate, informal conversation than the dinner table, a universal metaphor of coming together to share that most fundamental of cultural expressions: food. This documentary project builds on shared experience, before venturing into issues of contention. It presumes that political exchange, compromise and reconciliation can be wrested from bitterness and enmity, especially when such hostility derives from things we don’t know about others we don’t trust. Dinner in the No-Go’s seeks to promote mutual understanding and peace, putting humor, irony and just a little dash of absurdity into every bite.
The best thing about the movie...
Was the denim scarf you wore in Israel!! Haha…Looks great on you Marco! Where did you get it? I'm kidding the documentary film was awesome. I enjoyed it;-)
Open up your mind and be prepared for some interesting dinner conversation
Excellent documentary that opens up the eyes of people like me, an American, on the perspective from a variety of people of different cultures and faiths. I would love to see more dinner parties in different countries in a sequel, perhaps?!! :-) Bravo!
Awesome, provocative documentary
I really enjoyed watching this documentary because it gives us such a great insight into the thinking of various cultures - what they think about global politics, about religions and about each other. It was definitely provocative and dynamic, in that people didn’t hold back on their opinions. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and I highly recommend it
