A powerful interview with Pastor Victor Torres, as we discuss the upcoming movie about his life. We talk about his current ministry and life and his continued ministry to those who are broken and hurting.
In the early 1960s, Victor Torres and his family moved to Brooklyn, New York from their native Puerto Rico in search of a new life. The American dream quickly fades as they face a life of want in their adopted home. As a new recruit in a street gang, a teenage Victor embarks on a lucrative new drug-trafficking business in an attempt to help his struggling family. Victor is quickly enslaved by drug use, and his parents, Manuel and Lila, desperately search to find a way to help their son. A faith-based rehabilitation program is their last chance to rescue Victor.
The film VICTOR is an adaptation of Victor Torres’ autobiography entitled “Son of Evil Street”. The film tells the story of Victor and his family as they learn to live in their new land. Victor become a victim of gang life, and he soon finds himself enthroned by heroin and struggling with the faith that could save his life. After collaborating on the award-winning documentary LIFE IN A BOX, Executive Producer Greg Wilkerson, (son of David Wilkerson, who is depicted in the film) and Director / Co-Writer Brandon Dickerson join forces to to tell this inspiring story.
