Negotiations for entry are underway – we are off to find a sheik at a restaurant to seek permission to film inside the mosque. Many phone calls are being fired off in the Somine Restaurant on the corner of Crossway and Kingsland High Street. The air is heavy with the scent of soup – which smells good enough for Tony to order some.
Permission’s been found. One of the mosque elders has seen American History X and wants Tony’s autograph.
