A voice for humanity to ‘rise’ again

     (PNAN-CANADA) – Filmmakers, Toronto Pictures “wants the rights of women and children respected,” as  summed up by Bruno Pischiutta, and he remains on that path because they “want to win the fight against ignorance and bigotry.” Currently in production, “Abused in America” takes on child mistreatment with the filming Romania.

     Out of the thousands casted for roles, the eighty-seven actors are from not only Romania, but also Austria, Germany, Holland, England, India, South Africa, Canada, including the United States who were chosen: Jody Jaress in the lead role as Carol; Richard Meehan is Daniel;  Savannah Reinitzer, Madison; and Carl Anders plays Frank.

     The company, Toronto Pictures began in 1996 with its mission-driven platform to record current controversial issues. Their films give rise to about what is ethically right and are presented in a non-violent viewing forum.  “It is a new world; it is time for a new morality,” says Film Director Pischiutta. “We want to use film as an artistic weapon to improve the lifestyle and mentality of the viewers, to make their life better and to make them think in a positive way about major social problems that anguish our world today.”

     In their most recent big screen production, “Punctured Hope” deals with the practice of women slavery and genital mutilation in the Volta region, known as Trokosi. The film qualified for nomination consideration at the 2010 Academy Awards® in the category of “Best Picture” and it was nominated by the Political Film Society in Hollywood in two categories, “Best Film Expose” and “Best Film on Human Rights” of 2009.

     Also on the company’s agenda and set to open this year in Manzini, the Kingdom of Swaziland Film Academy is an educational center fostering the art of cinematography in Africa. They will begin a motion picture production based on the devastating phenomenon of HIV/AIDS in Southern Africa. The film will showcase for first time, the reality of this epidemic in Africa, especially in Swaziland that has the highest pro-capita percentage of people infected with the virus in the world.

     “We don’t just want to make movies; we want to make movies that educate, inspire and move people towards change proactively. Our artistic mission is to elevate awareness regarding issues of the moment and to influence social and cultural consciousness globally,” said Producer Daria Trifu.

     It appears Toronto Pictures could lay claim to these words by Henry David Thoreau: “If I seem to boast more than is becoming, my excuse is that I brag for humanity rather than for myself,” as they charge forward in producing global visual and audio artworks which fight intellectual pollution, stupidity, racism and discrimination.

However, there is more to this company and the way I can express what I found to be prevalent are in the words by Robert Francis Kennedy (1925-1968) US Attorny General:  “Each time a man stands for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

    Leo Rosten once said, ”The purpose of life is not to be happy, but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all.” I am confident, “Abused in America” by the power of its message will make a difference and it will change something in this world of ours!

This is a special production co., one who cares about the subjects and content of it’s work more than any other aspect. Thank you for granting me to opportunity to work with you and breathe life into your vision.


  12. Such an important topic it is that you are addressing. I am absolutely honored to be a part of bringing this project to the screen and the subject matter into the light. We generally see movies just as entertainment, but this movie will be not just entertainment; morever, an opportunity for enlightenment, teaching some and giving others the courage to step out of the dark.

  13. As the curtain rises, the truth will be revealed. As the curtain falls, my prayer for America and for the world is that the abusers will begin to realize their crimes against humanity and begin their own transformation into dignity.
    Bruno and Daria stand for the respect and dignity of all people everywhere: one race – a dignified and honorable human race. To this end they have my full support.

    Mr. Bruno and Daria you both are an inspiration to so many people and you inspire hope, a voice for those who can’t speak out for themselves, respect and dignity for those abused in different ways. I’m sure that Abused In America will be a big success into changing the mentality in a good way for the viewers, as for the abusers and the abused. I am proud of both of you and proud to be part of the film!
