The outstretched hand by Richard Copans (49mn): Both the architectural setting and the collections of objects bear witness to the diversity of Islamic civilisations. Echoing these collections, this film takes us to Agra, Istanbul, Cairo and Cordoba, back to ancient dynasties and faraway empires. It documents the richness and the opportunity to dream, now accessible to the public at the Louvre's new treasure chest in its sumptuous exhibition space, topped with a" butterfly wing".
Glimmer of Islam (26mn): The Krakow carpet by Valéry GaillardThis is the story of a carpet, one of the most beautiful carpets in the world. A carpet that has been shared and divided. A carpet that was stolen, that was sold, that was lost and then found. A carpet that can be read like a book and that will take us on a journey through history and time, to the heart of the monotheistic religions.
The Royal Mosque at Isfahan by Richard Copans (26mn): In 1598, King Abbas planned an immense urban project. His royal Mosque captured the unprecedented wealth of an art of living, the king's power, and the talent of architect Ali Akbar Esfahani.
