“Dawn of the Light”: New bicentenary film explores search for truth and meaning

Dawn of the Light, a new feature film commissioned by the Universal House of Justice for the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Bab, was released today on the bicentenary website, bicentenary.bahai.org.

The stories of the eight individuals are explored against the backdrop of the remarkable life of the Bab, the forerunner of Baha’u’llah.

Available in Arabic, English, French, Persian, Russian, Spanish, and Swahili voiceover and subtitled versions, the 48-minute film can be viewed here. The film can also be viewed on YouTube.
