A journey through Islam

A film by Bénédicte Pagno

From Isfahan to Sidi Bouzid, via Jerusalem, Cordoba and Dubai, this film takes us on a journey into Islam. Islam with a capital I, which Abdelwahab Meddeb worked to make known. The director follows the trail blazed by the late Franco-Tunisian poet and intellectual for whom «one way to fight fundamentalism is to recognize Islam’s complexity and its contributions to universal culture.» A journey between past and present, history and politics, music and poetry.
