In 2006, Father Douglas Albazi was captured by terrorists in his home country of Iraq. He was viciously beaten over his nine days of captivity. Eventually, he was released and continued to preach Christianity in Baghdad. For many years, he chose to not tell many about what happened to him. After continually seeing the persecution of Christians in his home, he decided to tell the world what happened to him.
I was selected by the Film Department of Boston College to film a documentary about Father Douglas. Another student and I traveled to New Zealand to interview him, as well as members of the parish. We learned about not only his life, but the Chaldean Church and the Iraqi-Christian genocide.
