.- A new film about partial-birth abortion was showcased at the 33rd annual March for Life in Washington last week.

A Distant Thunder was created by Jonathan Flora, an award-winning producer with Disney's Buena Vista Home Entertainment, and his actress-wife, Deborah, who plays the lead role in the film.

"We created this film in what many of those in the pro-life movement consider the belly of the beast—Hollywood,” said Deborah Flora. "We made it so that through our craft, a terrible truth could be told so lives could be saved."

The Floras spoke at a Capitol Hill reception, premiering the movie to members of Congress and their staff. Flora’s film is receiving critical acclaim for its courageous story-telling and creative style. The LA Daily News calls A Distant Thunder, "A powerful thriller and a gripping legal drama."

The film takes viewers through a maze of disturbing hints, twists, symbols, and flashbacks until, at the end, they are stunned at what they've been watching.

The filmmaker said he intends for the film to educate people on both sides of the debate, change attitudes and lives. It is only 35 minutes long and so can be viewed in classrooms, by religious groups and politicians.

A Distant Thunder is available on DVD at www.adistantthunder.com.
