Out of Cordoba is a documentary about Jews, Muslims, and Christians struggling against the hijacking of their religions by extremists. The film profiles contemporary people of faith, who, inspired by two “wise men” from the city of Cordoba in medieval Spain — Averroes the Muslim and Maimonides the Jew — are challenging the propositions that there is an inevitable “clash of civilizations” between the West and the Muslim world and an unsolvable conflict between Muslims and Jews.
