Veil of Tears DVD REVIEW

This gripping new documentary film tells the untold story of millions of women in India who are culturally oppressed for no other reason than the fact that they are women. However, despite the centuries of oppression, there are those who are reaching out and bringing hope to these women.

These are the faces of true survivors. Those who have withstood a lifetime of adversity in the face of a culture stacked against them. Take a heartfelt journey through the eyes of these women, and others, who unveil their personal stories of persecution, rejection, abandonment, tragedy and even triumph. Get a glimpse of the true resilience of the human spirit and the hope that has changed the lives of millions like these and is helping change millions more.

Narrated by Grammy-Nominated Recording Artist Natalie Grant, this film was shot on-location across the stunning nation of India in some of the most remote tribal villages in the world today. This is a journey where few outsiders have gone before.

While the film, "Veil of Tears", brings into focus the truth behind a dark reality existing in the world today, we are excited to highlight the hope being given to countless millions of women each day through the work and ministry of GFA.

Proceeds of this film will be donated toward our continued efforts to change lives on a social, educational, health and spiritual level. We invite you to take a moment to learn more about the mission of GFA and how you can be a part of our movement to rescue generations of women from persecution and rejection and into the hope of Jesus Christ.

  Veil of Tears is quite a DVD. It tells about the life cycle of women in different parts of India/Asia. How very horrible the things they have to go through. In Asia women aren’t treated like human, but more like animals. Having a female child is the worse thing that can happen, or not having enough money to pay the man to marry a woman.  Another really sad thing is young girls are made to marry at a very early age, they are slaves and if they become a widow they are cast out from everyone and everything they know. The woman is considered bad luck if her husband dies and it’s like her fault.
  What {besides all of the above} I found very disturbing is that an alarming amount of women commit suicide. Many, many women are made to get abortions if they know they are having a girl. In these countries about ¾ of the people are male. They kill off all of the girl babies.
  There is a group of people called Gospel for Asia and also Bridge of Hope who are trying to help these women to have something to hope for and part of that is reaching the men and teaching them the gospel. They learn that God loves the women and wants the men to treat them as human and love them. Some of the girls and women haven’t felt love until they come to these churches.
  My feelings on this DVD is that it really opens your eyes and makes you want to help. I also wish that in the DVD they would have spent a longer time talking about the good that is coming from these organizations and the hope that they have. Over ¾ of the DVD talks on the bad and ugly lives these women have to endure.
  This DVD is a really good way to show your church or group about what needs to be done and how we can do it. I recommend it.

Sounds like a movie that would be good in the local church. We need to be aware of what is going on in other parts of the world. marg

Please anyone that can share this documentary - please do. I was as as touched by the opening video as the video itself. It would be all easy to be so wrong and dismiss those caught up in culture hatred as unsavable.
