Summary

Summary

Originally aired on PBS, this installment to the multi-award winning National Geographic series offers an intimate documentation of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. Aside from providing insight regarding the universal principles of Islam, this production emphasizes the historical significance of Mecca to both the Muslim and non-Muslim population. Oftentimes constituting a journey of epic proportions, National Geographic Video: Inside Mecca follows several pilgrims throughout their trip, and takes pains to highlight their physical and mental preparation, the strain induced by the journey itself, and the spiritual ecstasy experienced upon arrival. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
