"Lady of Guadalupe"
Vision Films announces the theatrical release across Mexico of "Lady of Guadalupe" on December 10 and It will show in over 200 theaters throughout the country in Cinemex partner theaters. The opportune timing coincides with the annual Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, traditionally celebrated on December 12.
Based on true events, "Lady of Guadalupe", produced by Robert Hymers and Pinnacle Entertainment, is a moving religious discovery juxtaposing folklore and present day. Historically significant recreations are used to illustrate the origin of her prevalent and powerful symbolism of Mexican identity and faith. When a young and ambitious reporter (Guillermo Iván) is assigned an article on faith, he finds himself enmeshed in the legend of Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe. Skeptical of miracles and the importance of modern-day Christianity, the reporter’s investigation takes him from cynic to true believer as his personal limits are tested.
The international cast includes popular film and telenovela stars including, Guillermo Iván (Telemundo’s, "Al Otro Lado del Muro"), Eric da Silva ("O Atentado", "Valor da Vida"), Paola Baldión ("Portraits In A Sea Of Lies"), Huitzil Sol, Rudy Miera ("Milagros"), Norman Patrick Brown ("The Thin Red Line"), Kimberley Aria Peterson ("The Long Short"), Jesús Lloveras ("Tercer Grado"), and Glenn Craley.

We are proud to help honor her religious and cultural significance especially on her annual day of celebration.”

We believe that in moments like the ones we are currently experiencing, films like Lady of Guadalupe will give our audience a message that will positively influence society and Mexican families”.
