Our journey begins!

Learning the camera
Tim and I have started shooting our documentary film on Abdu'l-Baha's 1912 travels in the U.S. and Canada. We are not doing re-enactments but trying to give a sense of the time with people in period costumes--and shooting historic buildings visited by Abdu'l-Baha, son of the Prophet-Founder of the Baha'i Faith. So far we've just gone to Colorado. Two film students from the Art Institute of Dallas joined us for our first stint--Calvin Runji and Carlos Garcia. Enjoy these glimpses of the first few locations!

Amazingly, we meet a couple on the tracks
who live on Eden Isle and knew Anne's grandparents


  1. Hey, Anne, Tim. Much success on this endeavor. I'm excited to be able to follow along.

  2. Great! Hope you will be part of it--we need voice actors!
