× Trail & District Arts Council's MONDAY CINEMA

Peace by Chocolate

at The Royal Theatre, 1597 Bay Avenue, Trail.

Monday, November 14th @ 4 pm

$12/person - No assigned seating. Only 143 seats available.

Peace by Chocolate is based on the inspirational true story of a family’s journey from Syria to Canada, and how they rebuilt their chocolate business into a symbol for international peace and hope. The film follows the newly settled Hadhad family’s efforts to establish an artisanal chocolate shop in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. As business takes off and neighbours take notice, eldest son Tareq (Ayham Abou Ammar) struggles to reconcile his commitment to his family’s legacy with his own professional ambitions to be a doctor, much to the annoyance of eccentric patriarch Issam (Hatem Ali).

Peace by Chocolate offers both laughs and heartfelt lessons about the sacrifices we make for one another in our families as well as our communities as it explores the tension between duty and desire, looking back and looking forward.

“It’s a heartwarming story with a Come From Away vibe, and while it doesn’t shy away from the racism immigrants experience in Canada, the predominant mood is one of triumph over adversity.” - Chris Knight, National Post

Director: Jonathan Keijser / Cast: Ayham Abou Ammar, Hatem Ali, Mark Camacho, Yara Sabri / Country: Canada / Length: 1h 36 mins / Language: English, Arabic / Genre: Comedy, Drama, True Story / Rating: PG. Some subtitles.
