Bab ‘Aziz: The Prince Who Contemplated His Soul

Bab ‘Aziz: The Prince Who Contemplated His Soul, is easily one of the most visually rich film of recent time based on Sufi theme.

The title is from the main character, Baba Aziz, a very old blind dervish who is on his way to a place unknown where a rare Sufi gathering is to take place.

Guiding him across a sea of sand is his granddaughter Ishtar, a little girl who loves her grandpa but who is afraid they might never reach their destination,

all the more as the meeting is organized only once every thirty years. But Bab’Aziz is undeterred. He knows that if he “listens to the infinite silence of the desert with his heart” he will find the place. While making their way, Bab’Aziz tells Ishtar ……

But where is this gathering?

– I don’t know, my little angel.

But do the others know?

– No, they don’t know either.

How can you go to a gathering without knowing where it is ?

– It suffices to walk, just walk. 

Those who are invited will find the way.
