Hide the Knives
Hide the Knives investigates the possibility of bringing people together over a shared meal and increasing our collective ability to discuss contentious issues and respectfully disagree with one another. These six individual interviews offer an unfiltered look into time spent sharing intimate memories, experiences, and opinions. At a time when political discussions are increasingly tense and divisive, this simple act of recipe sharing offers an opportunity for people of differing opinion and life experience to work together, share commonalities and perspectives, and ultimately learn to better understand and respect each other's ideas.
