Film Title: 

RUMI: THE WINGS OF LOVE

Friday, 6 February 2015
at 7:00 pm
@ Hastoneest Gulberg

2007 Film/Documentary


Rumi, The Wings of Love takes viewers into a secret world rarely seen by outsiders. Nearly eight centuries after his death, Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi, Sufi master and mystical poet, is ever-present in the whirling ceremony of today's Mevlevi dervishes. Rumi 'existed outside the differences which divide men'. 

In this extraordinary video, Rumi's universal words and essence are seamlessly interwoven with his history and story of awakening. Shems Friedlander has been given unprecedented access to document sacred ceremonies. The Halveti zikr, Mevlevi semas, and the Gharib, or secret, sema - not seen for over 100 years - were filmed in Cairo, Istanbul, and the Garden of Rumi in Konya.

This unique footage set to Mevlevi music is enhanced by interviews with Sheikh Abu Bakr Siraj ad-Din (Martin Lings), philosopher and author Seyyed Hossein Nasr, and Sheikh Omer Tugrel Inançer, who reveals the hidden meaning of the ney, or reed flute.

Directed By: Shems Friedlander, Egypt/USA
Running Time: 34 minutes
