This 90-minute documentary transports viewers over nine countries and across 1,400 years of cultural history to reveal the astonishing riches of Muslim arts, crafts, and architecture. Exploring distant locations and many rare pieces of art, the film illuminates the history of a global culture, reflecting the Islamic world as it developed over centuries and as it is today. A brief discussion will follow, led by Dr. Alan Godlas of UGA's Department of Religion.
The film is included as part of the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys, a collection of materials from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association (ALA). Local support is provided by the Interfaith Cultural Organization of Athens.
