The Gate

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

The Gate is a one-hour docu-drama recounting the founding of the Bahá’í Faith in Persia by a Prophet known as The Báb. Beginning in 1844, the Báb's teachings, including the oneness of religion and the empowerment of women, spread rapidly across the region. Although religious and political leaders of the time brought relentless persecution against the Báb and His followers, today the Bahá’í religion is practiced throughout the world by over five million people. There have been Bahá’ís in Bloomington/Normal since the 1950s.

After the film, there will be a special Q & A with Steve Sarowitz, Executive Producer of The Gate.

Sponsored by the Bahá’ís of Bloomington/Normal. For more information, email or call 309-827-5936.
