Request for help in obtaining a copy of 'I Am a Sufi, I am a Muslim'

My university library has tried to order a DVD of the documentary 'I am a Sufi, I am a Muslim' but the company selling it has no distribution rights in the U.K. I was planning to show this to stuents in a couple of weeks, so I'm wondering if anyone has a copy of it that they could share with me, or can suggest an alternative film about Sufism?

Keynote Lecture

Japan400 and Plymouth: Why 1614 matters in 2014

Prof. Timon Screech (SOAS, University of London)

ABSTRACT:

It was 400 years ago, on 27 September 1614, that the first English ship to arrive in Japan made landfall in Plymouth. This ship, the Clove, had succeeded in obtaining generous conditions for trade from the Shogun and the English East India Company was confident of large profits. King James, who supported the venture was delighted, as was the Archbishop of Canterbury, who had also promoted it.
