FILM ► 1001 Inventions and the Library of Secrets

From Producer Ahmed Salim and starring Oscar-winning actor and screen legend Sir Ben Kingsley this short feature film is about the scientific heritage of Muslim civilisation. The mini-movie, entitled "1001 Inventions and the Library of Secrets", accompanies a global touring exhibition which was previously open to the public at the Science Museum in London.

In the movie, Sir Ben takes on the role of a mysterious and cantankerous librarian who takes a group of school children on an enlightening journey to meet pioneering scientists and engineers from the history of Muslim civilisation. The librarian is then revealed to be 12th century engineering genius Al-Jazari.
