The Treasures of Islam (at the Mediterranean)

These documentaries showcase the largely unknown art and culture of Islamic Egypt, Tunisia, Sicily and Spain. With their magical, atmospheric pictures, the films convey not only special insights into some of the most outstanding treasures of Islam, but also try to contribute to a greater understanding of the mentalities, often portrayed too antagonistically, of Occident and Orient. The following episodes are available: - Turkey - Istanbul - Seas, Walls and Mosques - Egypt - Crecent Moon over the Pyramids - Sicily - The Saracens' Gardens of Paradise - Spain - The Magic of the Moors - Tunisia - Minarets between Sea and Sand
