Exemplar, a film commissioned by the Universal House of Justice to mark the centenary commemoration of the passing of Abdu’l-Baha, was released today on Bahai.org.
The film follows the life of Abdu’l-Bahá and the profound effect He had on people both past and present. A sense of Abdu’l-Baha’s unique function as a shelter, a shield, and a stronghold for all humanity is captured in vignettes of some of the people whose lives were transformed through their association with Him.
Exemplar will be screened next week at a gathering at the Baha’i World Centre to commemorate this historic occasion with representatives of national and regional Baha’i institutions from around the world.The 55-minute film is available in Arabic, English, French, Persian, Russian, Spanish, and Swahili. The film can also be viewed on YouTube.
