Robert Amaya is on hot pursuit…
Vision Films will release its faith-based thriller Pursuit of Freedom (formerly Pulled from Darkness), starring the Latino actor, will get a limited day-and-date theatrical release, along with a VOD release across the U.S. and Canada, on September 16.
Pursuit of Freedom is the true story of a Ukrainian woman who was separated from her three children and sold into trafficking by Russian gangsters. After years of struggle, she defied all odds with the help and kindness of a Dutch nurse, an Armenian missionary and an American pastor. Though countries, miles and time kept them apart, she held on to her faith and with the help of the church and strangers, survived to be reunited with her children.
From writer-director George A. Johnson, the film also stars Jessica Koloian, Stelio Savante, Sharonne Lanier, Robert Amaya, Javier Colon, Mark Lowry, Gigi Orsillo, Elias Kemuel and Keslee Blalock. George and Karen Johnson produced alongside Savante.
Pursuit of Freedom‘s limited U.S. theatrical release will be a special version of the film with an edit geared towards a faith-based audience. Confirmed theaters showing the film include The Angelika Village East in New York City, Laemmle in Glendale, CA, Emagine Hartland in Hartland, MI, Galaxy Grandscape 15 in Dallas, and Cine America in Houston, TX. A DVD release will follow in early October.
