The music album composed by Sami Yusuf and released by Andante Records features the song ‘Shine’ and ends with a special tribute track to the late actor Omar Sharif who delivers his final lead performance in the short film.
Directed by Ahmed Salim, the partly animated film storyline is intertwined with a live-action backstory starring Omar Sharif, who guides in the quest of discovering Ibn al-Haytham’s journey to understand the principles of light and optical theories.
The album supports a global Ibn al-Haytham awareness campaign launched by British organisation 1001 Inventions in partnership with UNESCO that is part of United Nations proclaimed ‘International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies’ (IYL2015).
