Iran: mystic Iran: Shohreh Aghadashloo narrates this award-winning documentary that chronicles filmmaker Aryana Farshad's soul-stirring spiritual odyssey deep into the heart of her native Iran after a twenty-five year absence. At the risk of confiscation of film equipment and the threat of drug traffickers, Farshad embarked on a courageous and unprecedented cinematic tour to capture on film rites and rituals hidden for centuries.
Jerusalem: mosaic of faith: Three great faiths of the modern world converge in the holy city of Jerusalem. This place of pilgrimage and passion is a spiritual crossroads for the devout, and a wellspring of all that is sacred to Christians, Muslims, and Jews. This moving program explores each religion's claim on this ancient city of faith.
Egypt: cycle of life: Egypt is a collage of conflicting sights and sounds, but an affirming belief in the Muslim god, Allah, unites the majority of people. Within lavish tombs buried beneath the desert, we discover ancient secrets of a great civilization and the pharaoh's quest for immortality.
Greece: Isle of revelation: In this land of great beauty, the spirit of the past still rules, and the gods of old are part of the culture and a part of life. Yet, devotion to orthodox Christianity is a constant in the lives of nearly all Greek people.
