Watch the trailer for the Sound of Freedom
Over the summer Passion of the Christ star Jim Caviezel’s Sound of Freedom movie has been a massive sleeper hit across the pond.
Based on the true story of Tim Ballard, the film follows missions to rescue children from sex traffickers in Colombia.
Originally shot in 2018, it’s become one of the most successful independent films in history with over $183 million made worldwide on a budget of $14.5 million.
Much of Sound of Freedom’s success is down to Angel Studios’ Paid It Forward initiative.
At the end of the movie, Caviezel appears in a special message encouraging audiences to buy cinema tickets via a QR code for people who can’t afford to see the movie or otherwise wouldn’t, to help grow awareness of the ongoing horrors of child trafficking and modern slavery.
