Thoughts and Prayers


The gut-wrenching stories of 9 people whose lives have been touched by mass shootings. The father of a victim, the father of a killer, a doctor, a police officer and more – all portrayed by one actor. A slow-burning look at how gun violence affects lives.

From director Romy Goulem, Thoughts and Prayers is his third feature film, a Quebec / Ontario co-production, filmed in London Ontario and Montreal Quebec over three years throughout the pandemic. This powerful film is adapted from the solo stage show First person shooter, written and performed by Al Goulem. It features a stunning performance from Al Goulem– a true chameleon when acting. Thoughts and Prayers marks the fourth film created by the brother duo.
