UPF's Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World is a stunning achievement in documentary film making. It opens a window onto a sight of Islam so often neglected in the west. The aesthetic, beauty, and culture offer an opening for us all to start a dialogue on the values that we share and hold in common.

There's a thematic approach instead, with sections devoted to a single broad topic: The Word, Space, Ornament, Color, Water. Art discussed in one section turns up in another, giving the film a cohesive sweep.The Baltimore Sun

The data in this excellent film counters the perceptions formed by those watching mainstream media. We think it should be shown as oftern as possible, maybe even as one minute soundbites (as a psa/commercial) to counter the misleading ideas that have been formed.
