Vision Films Inc. has announced the US theatrical release of Lady of Guadalupe. From Director Pedro Brenner and Executive Producer Robert Hymers and Pinnacle Entertainment, the feature-length film depicts the revered religious and cultural icon and is the first modern production of her story.
It will open in American Cinemas in Houston and Ft. Worth, TX and in Galaxy Theatres in North Las Vegas, NV and The Colony, TX beginning today, Friday, December 11. 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 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.
Lise Romanoff, CEO and Managing Director of Vision Films says, “We are thrilled that our colleagues at Galaxy Theatres came on board to share this special film about Our Lady of Guadalupe at this opportune holiday time.”
“During these challenging times, it’s important for all of us to stay connected. We are excited and pleased to be a positive support to the communities we serve with this wonderful celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe,” Frank Rimkus, CEO, Galaxy Theatres.
