“The Miller Prediction”: A Feature Film by Cyrus Parvini

It’s not everyday a Baha’i feature film is produced so I’m very excited to share some details about The Miller Prediction with you! Produced by Cyrus Parvini, this movie is set in the early days of the Faith when William Miller predicted the return of Christ. Cyrus agreed to tell us about his much-anticipated movie, which is now available for purchase or rental on Amazon, iTunes, bestflixtv, and a few other distributors in the US (a complete list can be found here).

 

​Baha’i Blog: Hi Cyrus! Thank you for taking the time to share with us some of the behind-the-scenes information about The Miller Prediction. To begin, please tell us a little about yourself and your experience as a filmmaker.

​I am not a filmmaker by profession. I have been in international business and real estate development all my life but to be able to effectively proclaim the healing message of Baha’u’llah around the world I decided to take some film making courses at UCLA in 1985 and establish my production company under Radiant Century Productions in Los Angeles. I have since produced a few documentary films including “The Promise of World Peace- A Baha’i Perspective” which was the first Baha’i film ever broadcast on satellite in 1986.​

It’s certainly been an exciting weekend!

Around the world, on May 22, Baha’is celebrated the anniversary of the Declaration of the Bab. The Bab was a Messenger of God whose mission was to prepare humanity for the message of Baha’u’llah. The story of the Bab’s life and mission is dramatic and emotion-stirring – filled with persecution, difficulty and, ultimately, triumph. The Bab foretold the coming of a Divine Teacher with a message even greater than His own. Although the Bab’s faith was a religion in itself, the Declaration of the Bab reminds Baha’is of the exciting and remarkable historical events that provided the context for the mission of Baha’u’llah.

The other remarkable historical event that happened this 22 May – or was meant to happen but didn’t – is one that has captured the imagination of many since time immemorial: the end of the world.
