Incredible!
28 March 2014 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This documentary takes you into the heart of India and shows amazing footage of remote villages and bustling cities. More importantly, it speaks for the millions of women who have no voice and are living lives of hopeless misery, everything from girl infanticide to sex trafficking to bride burnings, just to name a few - women truly are one of the most oppressed people groups in the world! You will be moved to tears when you view Veil of Tears. But - it doesn't leave you that way! There is hope, and there is something you can do to change the lives of women who have lost hope. This documentary is filmed on location, and narrated by award winning music artist Natalie Grant, who has a personal passion for women in Asia after visiting there for herself. I recommend this film to everyone who wants to spend their time watching a high-quality, worthwhile feature.
