Culture, Nature and Light: These elements provide the structure for the one-hour documentary ﬁlm that explores the mind and heart of one of the world’s master architects, Chinese-American I.M. Pei, while chronicling his latest creation; the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar.
Produced by award winning directors Bo Landin and Sterling Van Wagenen the ﬁlm visits Alhambra and Cordoba in Spain, and Cairo, to search for references to understand the essence of Pei’s architecture that will ﬁnd its historical place in an Islamic world stretching from Cordoba to Samarkand.
