Synopsis

The repetitive actions of men and machines become a dance of grace and beauty in ‘Makh’bz’ as Aisha Al Muhannadi transforms the making of bread in Madinat Khalifa into a mesmerising vision. Following the stages of the breadmaking process—from mixing ingredients through kneading, baking and packaging—‘Makh’bz’ is a stunning meditation on the time, energy and skilled craft that go into providing Doha with its daily bread.
