Meet me Halfway


What will it be when an adopted black man and a white woman fall in love? What will it be if both are still struggling with their pasts? What will it be if they are both still working on themselves? What will it be when cultures get in the way of each other and themselves? What will it be if two people want to love each other and yet can't? Or can't and still want to?

Adams Mensah's Meet me Halfway gives voice, image and body to their attempt to resolve these issues, somewhere between attraction and conflict, understanding and misunderstanding, love and hate. A smashing dialogue about cultures, migration and, above all, about identity.
