      Would there be a way to show this film at the upcoming Parliament of World Religions in Toronto? Just a thought.

      Hi Amar,

      Almost at the three year point since you launched the project, and haven't heard about any progress for quite some time. I'm guessing there are about 170 or so other people who are wondering what is happening as well - would be nice to get an update.

      Hey Kurt,

      Yes I am sorry for the lack of updates. Been meaning to post the past week actually but things have been extremely busy.. expect an update today!

      Congratulations! The sampling of footage already looks wonderful and the music is so exquisite. I look forward to seeing and hearing this loving tribute to Rumi (and Shams).
