I am a Sufi, I am a Muslim / written and directed by Dirk Dumon ; research and commentary text, Dan Alexe ; production, Herman Meyssen ; Belgian Radio and Television.
Princeton, N.J. : Films for the Humanities & Sciences, 2005.
This program introduces Sufism, a branch of Islam which is much less well known in the West than some of the more fundamentalist forms which are frequently in the news. The program travels to India, Pakistan, Turkey, and Macedonia to explore exactly what is Sufism and observe how it is practiced in various parts of the world today. Among the many aspects of Sufism featured in the program are the whirling dervishes of Turkey, who find God through ecstasy; ecstatic fakirs in Macedonia, where there is a big revival in popular Sufism; and the vital role of music in Sufism in India and Pakistan
