Top Customer Reviews
RUMI: Poet of the Heart is a one hour film that explores the mystery of why the bestselling poet in America is the 13th century Persian mystic, Jelaluddin Rumi. Narrated by Debra Winger and beautifully filmed and edited, this documentary features lively conversation and readings by preeminent Rumi translator Coleman Barks. Joining Coleman are poet Robert Bly, author Deepak Chopra, storyteller Michael Meade, and religious historian Huston Smith.
