The Tree of Unity – A Baha’i-Inspired Short Film

In this short film, titled “The Tree of Unity”, two young Sri Lankan women have a conversation about a tree as a symbol for the interconnectedness of humanity,
and how Baha’is are working towards the unity of humankind.

The film was shot in the rural villages around Dickoya, in the tea estates of Sri Lanka. The Dickoya cluster currently has more than 1,000 Baha’i activities and the actors seen in the film are all Baha’is. This video is in Tamil, the most widely spoken language of Sri Lanka, but English subtitles are provided.
