Lake of Fire

It looks like the abortion debate might possibly explode once again due to a new documentary called “Lake of Fire.”

British filmmaker Tony Kaye put together a documentary featuring interviews from prominent figures (from both sides), research, and even gruesome pictures and video dealing with abortions, both successful and botched.

“Lake of Fire,” currently on limited release in the United States, unwinds over more than two and a half hours of interviews with some of the leading figures from the pro-life and pro-choice camps.

But it is the graphic and disturbing depiction of termination procedures, filmed like the rest of the movie in black and white, that marks the film out.

“From the moment I started making the film I thought I have to show an abortion, which at the time had never been done before,” Kaye, best known for his 1998 neo-Nazi feature “American History X,” told AFP in an interview.

“There was no question about whether or not that was the right thing to do because if I’m documenting two sides of the argument, that is one side of the argument and you have to show it,” he said.

One scene depicts a doctor sifting through a surgical tray after performing a late-term abortion, where the grisly residue of an arm, a foot and part of a face can be clearly made out.

“It’s about as shocking as any motion picture can ever get. It’s illegal to film someone being killed,” said Kaye.

Something tells me we’re going to be hearing more about this movie.
