Mesocafe

2009, 90 minutes

Love, blogging and politics in 2003 London

Leaving pre-invasion Iraqi in 2003, underground blogger Yusif arrives in London to work with Iraqi exiles to highlight the plight of the Iraqi people and promote an invasion to rid the country of Saddam Hussein. Falling in with the Middle Eastern community of London as they eat, learn and squabble in the Mesocafe, Yusif's eyes are opened over the course of four days; challenging his perceived role in the growing political crisis, and risking his budding love for an idealistic translator, Bisan.
