Through Their Eyes – Meeting Abdu’l-Baha

Through Their Eyes is a short animation that brings to life how Abdu’l-Baha touched the lives of certain notable individuals. We get a glimpse of what the Lebanese poet, writer, and artist Khalil Gibran said about Abdu’l-Baha after they met in New York, how the Japanese poet Yone Nogushi described Abdu’l-Baha’s teachings, and also how Abdu’l-Baha’s unbounded love influenced Lady Blomfield, a humanitarian and child rights activist from Great Britain.

As this year marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of Abdu’l-Baha, this film is part of an animated collection created by Flavio Azm Rassekh and PersianBMS, that started with Breaking the Chains a short film about the very first girls schools of Iran, which was built by the Baha’i Community under the guidance of Abdu’l-Baha.
