The Thomas McKenzie Film Series is the Rabbit Room’s ongoing film screening and discussion series at North Wind Manor, named in honor of our friend and fellow film enthusiast, Father Thomas McKenzie. To kick off the Film Series, the Rabbit Room is hosting at North Wind Manor a screening of Taste and See, a documentary project currently in production that explores the spirituality of food with farmers, chefs, bakers and winemakers engaging with food as a profound gift from God. Their lives in the fields, in the kitchen and around the table serve as a meditation on the beauty, mystery and wonder to be found in every meal.
Join this special Sneak Peek of the series that follows a woman grappling with the sudden death of her mother by holding tightly to the ritual of weekly family dinners. Raised as a Christian, but hungry to reconnect with her mother’s Jewish heritage, she joins a Jewish farming community. There she discovers Judaism as an embodied faith rooted in the land and centered around the same life-giving table.
A Q&A with Director Andrew Brumme will follow. Snacks shall abound!
