Breaking Bread Building Bridges

Breaking Bread, Building Bridges

For this month’s equity resource, Equity Committee member Kyle Goldschmidt recommends the documentary Breaking Bread, Building Bridges, which won the 2020 Governor’s Emmy Award by the Upper Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The documentary follows residents of Des Moines, Iowa, who were matched together based on their differences, as they joined one another for dinner over the course of three months. The project highlights that despite differences, people can come together and find commonality with one another. Available on YouTube, the documentary reflects the belief that we have a lot more in common with each other than we think.
