Summary The Voice of the Martyrs presents the inspiring new movie Tortured for Christ, a cinematic retelling of the testimony of VOM founder Pastor Richard Wurmbrand as written in his international bestseller Tortured for Christ. This movie was produced to honor the fiftieth anniversary of the book's 1967 release. Filmed entirely in Romania, including in the very prison where Pastor Wurmbrand endured torture and solitary confinement, this powerful film uniquely presents the story with live-action rather than interviews. The dialogue is presented in English, Romanian, and Russian (with English subtitles) to hold to the authenticity of this true story. This film contains graphic scenes that are appropriate for mature audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.
