‘Voiceless’ tackles abortion debate, arrives in theaters this October

From writer/director Pat Necerato comes Voiceless, a film that tackles the controversial pro-life vs. pro-choice debate with conviction and compassion, and presents that the true choice is one the church must make. In the film, a young, reserved war veteran-turned-community outreach leader puts his life on the line to stand against an abortion clinic that has taken up shop across the street from his Philadelphia church.

Voiceless_PosterInspired by real-life events, “Voiceless” depicts one church’s eventual awakening to a new outreach approach to the abortion clinic across the street, despite misgivings from many in the congregation. “Voiceless” shows how a church can wake up from apathy to form a positive, loving pro-life stance that can change a community.

Voiceless was made to engage the church,” said producer Stuart Migdon. “We believe our film artfully presents the issue in a way that pro-life supporters can rally behind without alienating pro-choice viewers before they’ve had a chance to contemplate our story.”

The film will launch theatrically in Fall 2016 and will be distributed by ArtAffects Entertainment. Margo Lange, president of ArtAffects Entertainment, has a long history of involvement in faith based releases including The Passion of the Christ. Other films Lange has contributed to in this space include End of the SpearBellaThe Stoning of Soroya M, Kirk Cameron’s Monumental, and King’s Faith.

Battling his own inner-demons, Jesse (Rusty Joiner: Last Ounce Of CourageDodgeball, “Days of Our Lives”) encounters a young, pregnant teen overcome with grief that, after an impulsive abortion, has her family blaming Jesse for more than just her final decision. Jesse’s wife Julia (Jocelyn Cruz: Strike OneThis Is Our Time) must come to terms with her own choices and decide if she can support her husband as opposition mounts against him. Comedian Paul Rodriguez also stars as Virgil with James Russo as Pastor Gil.

The winner of multiple awards, Voiceless has been honored as Northeast Film Festival’s Best Feature and People’s Choice for Best Feature Film and Best Feature Film from the California Independent Film Festival.
