CARROLLTON, Texas – Award-winning filmmakers Kenny and Kyle Saylors highlight the oppression and abuse of women across Asia in their critically acclaimed documentary “Veil of Tears: Hope Is on the Way” (www.veiloftearsmovie.com), narrated by Christian recording artist Natalie Grant and released in selected theaters nationwide March 28, April 4 and April 11.
Kenny Saylors, Grammy-nominated Christian recording artist Natalie Grant, Dr. K. P. Yohannan, founder and international director of Gospel for Asia (www.gfa.org) and Daniel Punnose, vice president of GFA, are available for interviews to discuss issues women face in South Asia, including gender-based abortion and infanticide; sex trafficking; bride burning; widow abandonment — but also about ways your audience can get involved and provide hope to these women.
Kenny and Kyle Saylors have been the creative force behind more than 18 years of industry success with award-winning national and international hit music videos, motion pictures, television series and critically-acclaimed documentary films. The Saylors brothers produced the powerful and award-winning “Kimjongilia,” which was an Official Selection at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.
Grammy-award nominated, multiple-Dove-Award-winning Christian recording artist and philanthropist Natalie Grant lends her dynamic voice to “Veil of Tears” as narrator. A life-changing trip to India not only inspired her to new charitable pursuits, but brought a new passion and direction to her music. Natalie brings her passion for helping the women of South Asia to the film in a way only she could.

Dr. Yohannan, founder and international director of Gospel for Asia (GFA), has been crisscrossing the globe for the last 40 years challenging the Body of Christ to discipleship in conferences, special gatherings and in churches. Dr. Yohannan’s radio program “Spiritual Journey,” in South Asia reaches more than 1 billion people in 113 languages. His “Road to Reality” radio program airs weekly on more than 900 stations in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Daniel Punnose, son of Dr. Yohannan, grew up in the ministry of GFA and sensed the Lord’s call early in his life to reach those who have never heard the gospel. After high school, he attended the Gospel for Asia Biblical Seminary in India and received a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree. Today, as vice president of GFA, Punnose spends much of his time traveling on the mission field and speaking at conferences and churches in the U.S.
“Veil of Tears” is scheduled to appear in 19 cities nationwide beginning March 28. For a complete list of cities, theaters and dates, visit www.veiloftearsmovie.com/cities.
