The film, Bourek, is literally about the food called bourek. How did that become the core of this story? Originally I'm from the former Yugoslavia, and bourek with yogurt is a common breakfast. It's a very familiar food for me. In Yugoslavia in the '90s, there was the breakup of the country, and at some point it hit me that traveling through that region, especially Greece and Turkey, all of these countries have historically had animosity or conflicts, but they all have this similar food. They all have bourek. Then I was talking to some friends from Israel and they have bourekas, and the north Africans have another version of bourek, and I thought this is just such a great metaphor for something that you share, and how food brings people together. It's also this ritual of sitting down to eat. Bourek is baked, and there's something special about the bakery.
