Through Their Eyes – Meeting Abdu’l-Baha (Persian) – کلید رهایی درون قفس

August 28, 2021, in Videos > Animation, by

This is the Persian version of Through Their Eyes, an animated film about meeting Abdu’l-Baha.

* Watch the English version of ‘Through Their Eyes’ here: 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.

Persian Description:

هم‌چنان که به صدمین سالگرد درگذشت حضرت عبدالبهاء نزدیک می‌شویم، مردم بیشتری در سر تا سر کرۀ زمین کنجکاو می‌شوند تا در بارۀ زندگی و میراث ایشان جزئیات بیشتری بدانند. عجیب است که چطور بعد از یک قرن، شخصیّتی تاثیرگذار مانند ایشان هنوز برای بسیاری گنجی پنهان است.

در این انیمیشن کوتاه تلاش کردیم تا نگاهی اجمالی داشته باشیم به اینکه شاعر، نویسنده و هنرمند لبنانی، خلیل جبران، بعد از ملاقات با ایشان در نیویورک چه چیزی در بارۀ ایشان گفته؛ شاعر ژاپنی، یونه نوگوچی چگونه تعالیم ایشان را توصیف کرده؛ و چگونه محبّت بی قید و شرط ایشان، لیدی بلامفیلد، یک فعّال حقوق بشر و حقوق کودکان در بریتانیا را تحت تأثیر قرار داده است.

این انیمیشن قسمتی از یک مجموعه است که با “شکفتن از شکاف سنگ”، فیلمی کوتاه در بارۀ اوّلین مدارس دخترانه در ایران که به وسیلۀ بهائیان و تحت هدایت حضرت عبدالبهاء ساخته شدند، شروع شد. انیمیشن‌های کوتاه بیشتری در بارۀ مشارکت ایشان در پیشرفت و توسعۀ جامعه منتشر خواهد شد.
