A new film, "Exemplar" explores the effect ‘Abdu’l-Bahá had on everyone who met Him

BAHÁ’Í WORLD CENTRE — Exemplar, a film commissioned by the Universal House of Justice to mark the centenary commemoration of the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, was released on

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-Bahá’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 Bahá’í World Centre to commemorate this historic occasion with representatives of national and regional Bahá’í 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.
