Journey To Mecca - Behind The Scenes

  • “I loved the idea…” Director and Writer, Bruce Neibaur

    "I loved the idea of shooting a dramatic narrative on the Golden Age of Islam," says Bruce Neibaur, who wrote and directed the IMAX® hit, Mysteries of Egypt, starring Omar Sharif, and also wrote the first drafts of the script for Journey to Mecca based on the story concept of Cunningham-Reid and Davies. The producers' reasons for doing the film were philosophically in line with mine. To do a film like this, you have the opportunity to introduce to audiences something that's entertaining, but also enlightening to help them understand what is Islam, who are Muslims – through one of the five pillars of one of the great religions of the world."
