Who was `Abdu'l-Bahá, and why did He come to the West?

Opportunities at end of 2015

The Persian version of Luminous Journey was shown in two parts at the recent Grand Canyon conference in Phoenix--and I went to attend the conference. Our photo image was the only image appearing in the conference program.
We did two screenings at the dinner hour, 5-6 pm, and surprisingly, a number of people attended. I also helped with Jon Rezin's 9 Star Media booth; we sold a number of DVDs. Best of all, I got re-inspired to work on the European story--particularly as two women we met from Germany said they would help us!  Lisa Bradley, in photos below, helped me on the second day of the screening.
Today, Tim & I presented stories and footage of the making of Luminous Journey to the youth at the Plano Baha'i School. That was a blessing, with confirmations.  Wish we would have more opportunities to present. . . .

Our second screening of the Persian-language version of Luminous Journey occurred this afternoon at the Friends of Persian Culture conference in the Chicago area. Probably 200 people or so came in to see the film; we were able to show 1:15 min. of it, and then announce its DVD availability in the bookstore.

One woman from Dubai bought 2 copies, and a number of people from Australia did as well. Somehow, it is very touching to me that the film will go out to these places.  Here I am, introducing the film.

And here is Jon Rezin and I at his 9 Star Media Booth. . . . He has multiple arms in the panoramic shot!

Persian Version of Luminous Journey in Production!

Finally, after more than two full years of work, our Persian version of Luminous Journey is being replicated.  It has been a hard and incredible project, involving lots of help and support.  Now 2 hours (instead of 2.5 hours), it is a work that reflects the Persian spoken in Iran today, with narrative voices all re-recorded. . . .
