A look in one filmmaker's own words and images at the mystical religious practice of the Sufis in Kurdistan.
At first I went back to look further into my family's 1000 years of documented History in Kurdistan. An old childhood mystery about Kurdistan gradually took over and changed my focus. That enigma shrouded in myths and folk tales, centered on the elusive men of the Ghaderi order of Derwishes or Sufies in Kurdistan.
"On my first visit to Kurdistan I was permitted not only to witness, but record their ceremonies in one of the oldest towns in Kurdistan. I considered it an honor and a privilege to have been given the chance. Over a period of 8 years I went back to Kurdistan to gather more footage of these seemingly ordinary men."
