Description: Ever since Roe v. Wade, the United States has been deeply divided on the issue of abortion. In that landmark case, an unmarried pregnant woman was refused an abortion in Texas and, with the ensuing judicial challenge, won American women the right to safe, legal abortions. Ever since, proponents and opponents have lined up on either side of the issue, launching verbal abuse - and worse - at each other. As the religious right has increased in size and power in the past decade, the issue has become even more divisive - and violent. "Lake of Fire" is unquestionably the definitive work on the subject of abortion. Shot in luminous black and white, which is in fact an endless palette of grays, the film has the perfect esthetic for a subject where there can be no absolutes, no "right" or "wrong." It gives equal time to both sides, covering arguments from either extremes of the spectrum, as well as those at the center, who acknowledge that, in the end, everyone is "right" - or "wrong." With graphic images of termination procedures and their aftermath, the film endeavors to show abortion's physical and psychological reality--to make clear what exactly is at stake. The film's title comes from one person's description of what awaits abortionists in hell. It is a brave film, even a monumental one. And, whatever you believe now, you are certain to think differently after seeing it.
