Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World {Review}

Islamic Art Promo

I was lucky enough to gain an advance viewing of Unity Productions Foundation latest feature Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible WorldI am a bit of a documentary geek and was interested to see how this story would be told. I was captivated.  This video is one of the most beautiful and interesting films I have seen in a long time.

I love travel and every minute of this video was a small vacation.  The narration and insight from scholars of history, art and Islam all added so much to the film.  I kept thinking over and over how important watching a documentary such as this would be in a classroom setting.  It’s not overtly religious, I never felt like there was a religious agenda – which is hard to do.  It was educational not only on an artistic level but as a whole.

As a Muslim there was a lot of information that I didn’t know and I couldn’t help but think how much a non-Muslim might learn.  This film shows the beauty of Islam, the culture, the history in a way that filters out conflict and propaganda.  What’s left is a beautiful story that will enrich anyone who watches the film.

I don’t want to give away too much because I really want you to tune in and watch.  I hope you’ll forgive me for not divulging all my favorite parts of the film.  After you watch, come back and share with me what you enjoyed!

Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World debuts on PBS stations around the country tomorrow (Friday July 6th)  at 9pm EST.  Make sure you tune in for this film.

    I missed first few minutes of this and was fascinated by every bit of the rest. I would like to watch this again with my cousin who has a deeper knowlege of Islam so we can talk about it.

    This was such a great documentary! I just fell in love with Islamic art again. The commentary and close up shots of the art and architecture makes this documentary a treasure.
