THE GATE: Dawn of the Baha'i Faith

The Spiritual Assemblies of the Baha’is of Trail and Castlegar will be hosting a special screening of THE GATE on Thursday October 24th at 7:30 p.m. at the Old Castle Theatre in Castlegar.

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, His message and the origins of a new era in world religion. For the first time, audiences will have the opportunity to discover The Báb and the Bahá’í Faith through the universally embraced medium of documentary film. 

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Co-Producer /Actor Adam Mondschein. 

Directed by Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Bob Hercules (Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise; Forgiving Dr. Mengele) and executive produced by Chicago-based entrepreneur and philanthropist Steve Sarowitz, The Gate combines dramatic reenactments with interviews of renowned historians, religious scholars and experts in the Bahá’í Faith to celebrate the brief, exciting life of a prophet and the indelible impact His message continues to have on the world today.

Filmed in Spain, Israel and the U.K., The Gate transports viewers back to 1844 Persia when the Prophet Herald known as The Báb (or “the gate” in Arabic) experienced a revelation of God and declared himself to the faithful.

Admission is free but registration for the screening is recommended as seating is limited.
