Former Superman Dean Cain is taking on a much more serious subject than most men in tights these days. The actor has produced a new film, “Architects of Denial,” which delves into the Armenian genocide and the denial by the Turkish government and other authoritative bodies that atrocities ever took place.
“Armenians have been persecuted for centuries. It’s unreal,” Cain told “Fox & Friends” recently when discussing his upcoming project. “They were the first bastion of Christianity. They were the first country to, I think, recognize Christianity, and they are the only bastion of Christianity in the Middle East.”
It was during and after World War I that the Ottoman Empire carried out the killing of what is estimated by many to be 1.5 million Armenian citizens, including women and children. To this day, the Armenian people are persecuted in the Middle East for their beliefs — and many are kept from their true home.
Turkey, which was the successor state to the Ottoman Empire, denies using the word genocide to describe the historical deaths of Armenians, and many other governments officially deny the atrocities as well, likely due to political pressure.
“Architects of Denial” not only digs into the persecution of Armenians and Christians in the Middle East, both past and present, but it also sheds light on those politicians who refuse to acknowledge an event many historians and scholars accept as a sad reality.
The trailer shows camera crews confronting two Democratic members of Congress, Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas and Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee.
