The repetitive actions of men and machines become a dance of grace and beauty in MAKH'BZ. The making of bread in Madinat Khalifa becomes a mesmerizing 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.
