Documentary raising awareness about plight of Christians in the Middle East

As the fight against the Islamic State group in the middle east and around the world continues, United States Secretary of State John Kerry determined that the Islamic State group is committing genocide against Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria.

A new, local documentary brings to light the plight of Christians in the Middle East. The documentary is called "Marked: The Untold Story of the Iraqi Christians."

VIDEO: Vanessa Denha Garmo and radio host and journalist Al Zara join us on The Nine to tell us more about the documentary.

The documentary is premiering during Holy Week before going on a national tour. The premiere screening is sold out, but if you'd like to learn more or volunteer for the cause visit
