Main Document

Quote: "The film's content and production will serve as a source of encouragement and visibility for the Disabled Community."

Angels of Mercy is a home invasion thriller, with themes of empowerment at its core. It is one of very few films written, produced, and starring a person with a disability, Owen Kent.

The film's content and production will serve as a source of encouragement and visibility for the Disabled Community. Angels of Mercy's message will be delivered to this community through of our affiliation with Centers for Independent Living, an organization of over 400 offices designed to serve the 45 million plus US citizens with disabilities.

The film, not only, is designed for empowerment within the disabled community, but also to promote awareness of the biases toward the disabled community often portrayed in popular media.

Many of our crew members will be from the disabled community, but more importantly, our lead actor, who is also a co-writer and co-producer on the film, is from the community as he has the condition Spinal Muscular Atrophy. To our knowledge, this is the first time someone with this condition has occupied the lead role of a feature film.

We feel as though the horror genre, with such a large audience, is the perfect way to spread our message about the disabled community that many times is ignored or misrepresented in films, despite consisting of nearly 20% of the US population.
