New Film ‘Persecuted’ Warns of Abuse of Gov’t Power, Religious Persecution

WASHINGTON — “Persecuted,” a new film that will be released on May 9, is a thriller with a political message about religious persecution and the abuse of government power.

While Hollywood is better known for making films with a liberal point of view, “Persecuted” was unabashedly made from writer, producer and director Daniel Lusko’s conservative viewpoint.

“We as a nation are perilously close to losing freedom of speech and freedom of religion and everyone we’ve shown the film to has remarked on how easily the plot of ‘Persecuted’ could actually take place — or perhaps already has and was covered up,” Lusko said. | More details.
