Film about the love for Rumi

KONYA - Foreigners who converted to Islam after being touched by a Turkish spiritual master’s philosophies are the focus of a new documentary.

A Turkish music company has filmed a documentary about seven people from the United States, Switzerland, Italy, Sweden and Mexico, who have been impressed by the works and philosophy of Rumi, one of the greatest spiritual masters of Turkey, during visits to his birthplace, Konya.

Hikmet Çetiner, the owner of the music company, said they believed the 40-minute documentary titled "Işığa Gelenler" (Who Find the Light) would draw a lot of attention from around the world.

"The documentary tells the stories of people from different countries, who came to Konya after hearing about Rumi and his philosophy. It’s about their research and conversions to Islam as a result of spiritual events they experienced," he said. Çetiner said it took three years to create the documentary. "The documentary is in Turkish with English subtitles. It is a DVD and will be released to the market in the coming days."

In the documentary, Swiss Peter Cunz said he visited the Rumi Museum in the central Anatolian city of Konya when he was a student. "As soon as I entered the museum, my heart started beating very fast. I found myself in a different atmosphere. My mind was still there when I returned to Switzerland and researched Rumi. I decided to become Muslim because the way to understand Rumi comes from Islam," he said.

Elizabeth Gubelman from Sweden said when she came to Konya and she already knew about Islam thanks to her Muslim friends. "I am very sad when I leave Konya. It is my biggest desire to become close to Rumi, to find love."
