Ornament of the World tells the story of a remarkable time in history when Muslims, Christians, and Jews forged a common cultural identity that frequently transcended their religious differences. This film retraces an 800-year period in medieval Spain, from the 8th through 15th centuries, during which the three cultures, though they competed and sometimes fought, managed to sustain relationships that enabled them to coexist, collaborate, and flourish. Blending evocative location cinematography with dramatic and lifelike animation, this is a fascinating journey through the cities at the center of the story: Cordoba, Seville, Toledo, and Granada. Discover what made this rare and fruitful collaboration possible, and what ultimately tore it apart.
