This documentary film offers a lively and provocative exploration of the genius and timeliness of Rumi’s poetry, and provides insights into his emergence in the west nearly 700 years after his life as a Persian poet. Featuring Coleman Barks, along with poet/translator Robert Bly, author Deepak Chopra, and storyteller and mythologist Michael Meade.
“At the end of our wanderings there is only the soul’s yearning to return to God. No one speaks that yearning better than Rumi. No one, these days, does Rumi better than Coleman Barks.”
– Ram Dass
“I am so small I can barely be seen.
How can this great love be inside me?
Look at your eyes. They are small,
but they see enormous things.”
