Rumi

Director/ Producer (2006, 14 min.)

Shot in Konya and Istambul, Turkey, Love and Unity is a window to the effect of Rumi’s poetry in lives of people from diverse cultures and religions via interviews, Sufi rituals, and music. For many of us, living in today’s world of misunderstanding and divisions Rumi unifies through his poetry to a world of peace, harmony, and love. Words of Ms. Esin Celebi, Rumi’s decedent, brings a fresh and unique insight into the film.

Director: “Making Love & Unity was like attending the school of Life. Making it I learnt so much more than words can write, more than pictures can show. My aim was not just to capture the dances of the Turkish Sufis but to reach beyond borders of race and religious beliefs.”
