Preview: Lake of Fire is a Shock Doc

By July 28, 2007

Follow me on:

Covering a controversial subject that has been avoided in recent narrative features ranging from Hollywood blockbusters like Knocked Up to independent films such as Waitress, Tony Kaye's Lake of Fire takes viewers inside abortion clinics and to the pro-life demonstrations held against them.

The film shows shocking footage of actual abortions in progress and the remains of aborted fetuses, as well as the appalling images of murdered abortion clinicians and the horrifying testimonies of pro-life fanatics who are convinced all abortionists should be killed.

It took documentary filmmaker Tony Kaye fifteen years to make Lake of Fire, which he shot entirely in black and white to reveal, he explains, "all the gray issues surrounding abortion."

Lake of Fire opens in October. This probing, insightful, emotionally challenging study is bound to be one of 2007ís most controversial documentary films. It is guaranteed to make you rethink your position on abortion, whatever that might be.
