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 tahina...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 discovers a war in the kitchen, just as ferocious as any Arab-Israeli conflict. But this war has no soldiers, bullets, rockets or tanks. Just - CHICK PEAS and HUMMUS! Make Hummus Not War, is a humorous homage to the chickpea's most distinguished dish. But there's a personal story within the 'hummus war' story, how Graham became a hummus tragic-a father who served as a soldier in Palestine during World War 2-and two lovers in his life, one Egyptian, one Jewish, with whom he shared a great culinary passion.
