Hajj is the pilgrimage to Mecca that every Muslim must make at least once in their lifetime if they are able. This major exhibition charted the history of this deeply personal journey that millions of people undertake every year.

Only Muslims are allowed into Mecca and permission to film the Hajj is a rare opportunity. The British Museum had access to the rights to use excerpts from the breath-taking IMAX© movie Journey To Mecca www.journeytomecca.co.uk which includes stunning photography of the rituals that make up the Hajj.

Clay worked closely with the Museum to create a seven-minute full HD film that introduced visitors to the poetic scale and intimate rituals of Hajj.
