Enjoy the Full Length Film In Super HD (1080p)
Cities of Light: The Rise and Fall of Islamic Spain tells the epic story of one of the world's great civilizations: the European Islamic civilization of Muslim Spain. Its rise and fall was due in large part to the rise and fall of tolerance among its Christian, Muslim, and Jewish inhabitants. As we stand at a crossroads of history today, Cities of Light is a story with much to say about the dangers of a clash of civilizations.
On Wednesday, August 22, 2007, PBS presented a nationwide broadcast of Cities of Light: The Rise and Fall of Islamic Spain and now it is available in stunning high definition through our UPF Theater.
