Father Douglas Bazi – Iraqi Priest

I spent a good portion of 2016 into early 2017 working on a documentary about the rise in global Christian persecution – culminating in a global conference this May in Washington, DC. What struck me the most from everyone who was interviewed who had experienced true persecution first-hand was the call to truly love and forgive even when most would be calling for hatred and retaliation. I’ve been deeply and permanently impacted by these stories. My eyes have been opened to things that are too easy to ignore in the U.S. Editing these stories has also renewed my passion for the power of story telling through video. Yes, there are some pieces that I will work on that have no big impact on anybody. They may sell a product or scratch an artistic itch (and that’s not such a bad thing), but working on projects with subject matter that I’m most passionate about is where I long to be.
