Filmmakers of the blockbuster film "Sound of Freedom" are pushing to reschedule two screenings of the movie that were supposed to take place on a U.S. military base.
"I made ‘Sound of Freedom’ to raise awareness of the rampant sex trafficking in children happening throughout Latin America and into the United States with the goal of ending this modern-day slave trade," Verástegui told Fox News Digital. "Because SOUTHCOM’s brave soldiers work to break up the transnational criminal organizations responsible for drug and sex-trafficking into the U.S., we wanted to inspire and thank them for their service by offering a private screening on base."
The screenings were originally planned for Aug. 28 and Oct. 19 but were canceled shortly before the first scheduled event. In a Military Times story published shortly after the first canceled event, base leadership explained that the screenings were canceled in order to "prevent the appearance of copyright infringement."
