1st of ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s Commemorative Videos

One hundred years ago, ‘Abdu’l-Baha, the son of Baha’u’llah and the perfect example of His teachings, passed from this world.

Exemplar follows the life of ‘Abdu’l-Baha 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, a stronghold for all humanity is captured in vignettes of some of the souls whose lives were transformed for the betterment of society through their association with Him. The film reflects a few of the universal principles embodied, both in word and deed, by ‘Abdu’l-Baha—principles that animate a global movement of individuals, communities and institutions striving to emulate His example in service to humanity.

“The momentum that is sure to build with each successive cycle of the One Year Plan will be further augmented by the release of two films. The first of these, which will become available in time for the centennial commemoration, will be a portrait of the Person of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. Besides being a tribute to His life and work, it will explore how, by championing the oneness of humanity through His words and deeds, He offered a challenge to the stale assumptions and prejudices of the age, and gave stimulus to a process of unification which continues to this day. A second film, following soon after the first, will reflect on the expiration of the first hundred years of the Formative Age from the vantage point of the heights to which the Bahá’í community has climbed, and from where it can now gaze upon new horizons.”
