Gülen Movement

Our current project is on the Turkish Islamic scholar, Fethullah Gülen and the largely autonomous movement that has grown around him and his teachings. His website has some of his extensive writings and articles.

Gülen is an advocate of dialogue between faiths and believes in tolerance and acceptance of others.

They embrace a traditional Islamic theology albeit one influenced by Turkish sufism. What intrigued us about the Gülen movement was the degree to which they embrace tolerance, dialogue, science and education.

This certainly is an Islam very different from the violent and anti-modern Islam portrayed in the American mainstream media and we hope with this video to bring some much needed information and understanding to how Americans see Islam.

Update September, 2009:

We are organizing and editing the extensive interview footage and plan a first cut soon.
