Barzakh Film

A Beginners Guide to Andalusi Calligraphy. Filmed in and around Orgiva and al-Andalus, and featuring interviews with Ian Whiteman and Emin Alzueta, this is the untold story of the only European calligraphic script used to write the Quran. Almost extinct, yet it was once a part of the most extraordinary cultural flourishing of the Middle Ages. Trace its journey from Madinah to its pinnacle in Al-Andalus, Spain where we see the rich context in which it evolved.

Directed and produced by Zakariyya Whiteman
