    • Synopsis
    • In a time of growing incomprehension between Occident and Islam, is there still will enough to rediscover Islam?
      JOURNEY TO MOUNT TOMOR shows that, in the heart of Europe, lies a unknown and forgotten place, where a “soft”, open and promising Islam exists: Bektashism. What do we know of this branch of Islam?
      Every year, the Mount Tomor becomes a place of an exceptional pilgrimage, with no grave or relic. This event in honour of Abaz Ali is the occasion for many pilgrims came from Macedonia and Albania (as well as from Europe and America) to get together around rite, songs, music and dance. This religious event, so far from the Islam we know, opens on a world of possibilities.
      What place this historically progressive movement can occupy in the construction of a more opened and more tolerant Europe?
      This journey to Mount Tomor invites us to share this pledge.
