Sailor, Sufi, Spy is a documentary portrait of Robert Darr–a teacher of traditional wooden boat building and of traditional Sufi spirituality in Northern California. As he restores the Freda, the oldest wooden sailboat on the West coast, he reflects on the intersections between art, beauty, adventure and spirituality. (56 min. RT).

We invite you to contribute to our nonprofit foundation, The Afghan Cultural Assistance Foundation (ACAF). The ACAF has been saving money for several years for the establishment of a khanaqa, (traditional Sufi gathering-place). We have, with the grace of God, purchased a property, which will serve as our meeting-place, library, and hopefully a setting for individual spritual retreats. Restoration and maintenance, plus ongoing utilities are still needed to keep the khanaqa functioning. Your generosity and thoughtfulness are greatly appreciated.
