Summary: "London after 7/7"
Are open societies really open to cultures that are different?
With an optimistic take on the town, the people, places and candid interviews by a Pakistani Filmmaker, “Mind the Gap”, the ©Vlogumentary is very relevant in light of today’s controversies between the Islamic and non Islamic world.

Nadia Aamer's ©Vlogumentary; is a “personal point of view” on the social, cultural and political issues that we face in a multicultural city like London today. This is a narrative of a person who believes that human interactions are much more complex than what we see on television while criticising the mainstream media for creating misunderstandings between this and those “other regions of the world”. This is an individual's effort to bridge the gap which infects the minds of the people through repeated exposure to negative imagery. What bridges the gap is the ability of the British society to laugh at oneself.
