THE WAY OF THE HEART
 The life and legacy of Hazrat Inayat Khan
 a film by Mischa Scorer
 The Way of the Heart is a luminous chronicle of his journey to the West and the wisdom of Sufism he transmitted, and it reminds us that divinity can be found in the depths of every heart. It sounds a note of universal harmony in response to the great need of the world today.

 RUMI: POET OF THE HEART
 Produced and directed by Haydn Reiss
 Features Barks along with poet/translator Robert Bly (who in 1976 encouraged Barks to begin to translate Rumi); author Deepak Chopra, storyteller and mythologist Michael Meade, and religious historian and author of “The World’s Religions”, Huston Smith. Oud virtuoso Hamza El Din and musician Jai Uttal offer inspiring accompaniment to this beautifully produced film.
 A lively and provocative exploration of the genius and timeliness of Rumi’s emergence in the west.
ISLAMIC MYSTICISM: THE SUFI WAY
 It is said that while a Muslim prays five times a day, the Sufi prays without ceasing. This film, shot by Elda Hartley, captures the Sufi quest for deeper meaning in all things, and includes entrancing footage of Whirling Dervishes, endlessly circling in search of God.
 Shot in magnificent Islamic architectural settings from Morocco to Turkey to India, Islamic Mysticism: the Sufi Way provides a window into the rigorous Sufi schedule of prayer, fasting and study.
 Professor Huston Smith, renowned scholar of world religions and author of A History of Man, adds commentary as the camera takes an in-depth look at this gentle, mystical branch of Islam
