The one movie to see at the Atlanta Jewish Film Fest if you love food

If you love food -- and good puns -- there’s a movie for you on the recently-announced Atlanta Jewish Film Festival lineup.

The festival, which runs from Feb. 6-26, will host screenings of “Chewdaism: A Taste of Jewish Montreal” at 2:25 p.m. and 7 p.m. at City Springs in Sandy Springs. 

The movie sees comedy duo Eli Batalion and Jamie Elman, creators of the Yiddish language web series YidLife Crisis, exploring their heritage by eating their way across their hometown. Expect nods to the famous Montreal bagel, whose merits are oft-debated; deli-smoked meats; and chocolate babka.

Batalion and Elman will speak after each screening, joined by Souper Jenny owner Jenny Levison in the afternoon and Steak Shapiro in the evening.

Tickets for AJFF movies go on sale Jan. 28.
