Rumi Returning

tells the story the Sufi poet who died 800 years ago, having fled Afghanistan as a war refugee to become one of the planet’s great voices for religious tolerance. Airs on the UA Channel, Thursday, January 22nd at 8:00 p.m.

Many believe Rumi’s universal, tolerant mysticism, beloved by both Islam and the West, 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, from Rumi’s Mevlevi order, and the architectural masterpieces of medieval Islam
