Cities of Light
Over a thousand years ago, Europe experienced one of its greatest periods of cultural enlightenment.
For more than three centuries in Medieval Spain, Muslims, Jews and Christians lived together and prospered in a thriving multicultural civilization. Here, remarkable individuals of different faiths made lasting contributions in such areas as poetry, art, architecture, music, dining etiquette, science, agriculture, medicine, engineering, navigation, textiles, and even hydraulic technology.
Cities of Light takes viewers through an engaging, insightful journey into this critical period in world history. This documentary highlights the triumphs and achievements of diverse cultures that co-exist and thrive together, but it also depicts the tragedy that ensues when religious extremism begins to rise.
The film event is sponsored by the Tiburon Film Society, at the Tiburon Library located at 1501 Tiburon Boulevard in Tiburon, on Thursday, July 13, 2017 @ 6:30 p.m.
The Admission is FREE and open to the public.
