Event description

Description

Although he was born more than 800 years ago, Rumi's story is divinely relevant to us today. His works continue to resonate and inspire people all over the world. Across time, place and culture, Rumi's poems articulate what it feels like to be alive, and help us understand our own search for love and the ecstatic in the coil of our daily lives. In the course of his life, Rumi left us a literary legacy that has earned him the title “The Shakespeare of love” and "the greatest mystical poet of all time”.

Rumi Returning explores how the work of the so-called "Sultan of Lovers" provoked such a devoted following. Many believe Rumi’s universal, tolerant mysticism could answer to the clash of civilizations facing humanity today. Shot mostly in Turkey, where the great mystic lived and taught 800 years ago, RUMI RETURNING features Sufi music, high-definition visuals of the Whirling Dervishes that Rumi inspired, and the medieval architectural masterpieces of the region.

With commentary by experts including the great Rumi interpreter Coleman Barks, Dr. Akbar Ahmed, mystical scholar Andrew Harvey, this inspiring film asks the question: “Does an 800 year old mystic hold the secret to world peace?”
