Lake of Fire

Tony Kaye, 2006

New Documentary

Nonfiction filmmaking holds a strong appeal for many committed directors and producers. This ongoing series lets you sample wide-ranging approaches to the contemporary documentary.

British-born director Tony Kaye (American History X) began work 16 years ago on this self-funded project that attempts to do justice to the fight over abortion in the U.S.

Shot in sumptuous black-and-white, Lake of Fire looks exceptionally beautiful although it contains extremely graphic footage of what abortion honestly entails. Exploring the subject at considerable length, the New York Times noted that Kaye “has made a documentary that vividly delineates how religious-fundamentalist terrorists take root in a country, slide around the law and gain legitimacy (martyrdom), and how those who profess to love God can justify murder.”

Note: Contains extremely graphic footage. (152 mins., video)
