Commissioned by the Universal House of Justice, Exemplar is a film on the life of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá'. Released just 10 days before the 100th anniversary of the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá', this film will be available in English, Arabic, French, Persian, Russian, Spanish, and Swahili.
One hundred years ago, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the son of Bahá’u’lláh and the perfect example of His teachings, passed from this world. Exemplar 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, 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-Bahá—principles that animate a global movement of individuals, communities and institutions striving to emulate His example in service to humanity.
