Furusiyya in the East meets Chivalry in the West. Discover how these distinct practices of combat and knightly values led to a specific culture in the Islamic East and the largely Christian West.

Tales of knightly culture have been told throughout history – of brave heroes fighting for their sovereign, their religion and their honour; stories of war, loss, comradery and courtly love. But what was this culture of furusiyya and chivalry? How did they begin? And how did they face each other in important historical periods?


The sound design heightens the onscreen conflicts between the east and west depicted and battling against each other. Armies are heard equipt with horses, heavily armoured and fighting with shields, swords and spears. The opening ornamental pot is exaggerated to sound like opening a huge stone door full of secrets from the inside. The Frusiyya text blazes onto screen with a burning fire texture and sound.
