As the world suffers from the divisive forces of strife and intolerance, a new Faith advocates the oneness of humanity’s major religions as a path toward world peace. The Gate: Dawn of the Bahá’í Faith is the groundbreaking documentary that tells the amazing, true story of the Prophet Herald known as The Báb (or “the gate” in Arabic) and the origins of a new era in world religion.
Filmed in Spain, Israel, the U.K., and the U.S.A., The Gate transports viewers back to 1844 Persia when The Báb experienced a revelation of God and declared himself to the faithful. Narrated by Yaani King Mondschein (Mad Men, NCIS) and interspersed with striking reenactments of the persistence and persecution of His early followers are interviews with leading academic and faith experts including Dr. Joy DeGruy (author of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome), Nader Saeidi (professor of Bahá’í Studies at UCLA) and Bahá’í actor/artist Rainn Wilson (The Office), who often speaks publicly about the impact his faith has had on his life and career.
Directed by Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Bob Hercules (Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise; Forgiving Dr. Mengele), The Gate recounts the brief, exciting life of a Prophet and the indelible impact His message continues to have on the world today.
