1001 Inventions and the World of Ibn Al-Haytham is a 2015 part-animated science education film, which is notable for being actor Omar Sharif's final movie on 10 July 2015.[1][2][3][4]

The film was produced by 1001 Inventions and is part of a science exhibition of the same name. Both the film and the exhibition were created to coincide with the United Nations campaign celebrating the International Year of Light, operated by UNESCO.[5] Within the film, Sharif's character helps his granddaughter with a challenging homework assignment about Ibn Al-Haytham, the 11th century polymath who made significant contributions to the principles of optics and visual perception.
