Make Hummus Not War
Make Hummus Not War 1 x 60' or 1 x 90'
Filmmaker Trevor Graham is an Australian hummus tragic. Every week in his Bondi Beach home he obsessively observes the hummus making ritual – mashing chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic and tahini, with just a touch of cumin. But when the Hummus War erupted in the Middle East in 2008, amongst the usual suspects: Israel, Lebanon, and Palestine, Graham was intrigued and hungry for more. He’s a masher, not a fighter, though, and this is a perfect opportunity to unite Arab-Israeli enemies under the unifying banner of good food!

Make Hummus Not War is a humorous homage to the chickpea’s most distinguished dish. But there’s a personal story within the story, how Graham became a hummus tragic – a father who served as a soldier in Palestine during World War II – and two lovers in his life: one Egyptian, one Jewish, with whom he shared a great culinary passion.
