An introductory film, ‘1001 Inventions and the Library of Secrets’, starring the Oscar-winning Sir Ben Kingsley will be screened during the exhibition. Winner of 27 international awards, the film reflects the rich scientific and cultural heritage left by Muslim Civilisation for today's generations. The 12-mintue film tells the story of three students who visit a library to research how the modern world has been influenced by the Dark Ages. They meet the Librarian, who guides them on a journey of discovery about the ancient Golden Age and its pioneering inventors and scientists.
