Eyes of Mercy's mission is to reignite a sense of awe in the devotion to the Rosary and it will be distributed online for FREE. Karyme Lozano is a prominent international TV star who became involved with EYES OF MERCY because of her own personal devotion to the Rosary. "We want this film to reach and have an impact on a worldwide audience. Praying Mary's Rosary is the greatest tool we have for instilling both individual and global peace."

EYES OF MERCY is a dramatic and mystical film that presents the spiritual battle in play for each of our souls, and the direct impact of prayer.
To transcend the barriers of language, the story is told visually with little dialogue. Director Roberto Girault (El Estudiante) explains his approach: "The film brings the viewer into a ‘mystical reality’. People will actually see what happens within a lost soul when someone prays the Rosary for him. With state-of-the-art CGI and an international cast, we are presenting a quality faith-based film that will challenge and inspire viewers.”
EYES OF MERCY brings audiences inside the soul of a man struggling from despair and temptation. It presents the spiritual battle in play for each of our souls, and the direct impact of prayer.
Countless miracles have been attributed to this special prayer that began in the 13th century when the Virgin Mary gave her Rosary to St. Dominic. However, according to a Georgetown University study, of the 1.2 billion Catholics on the planet, nearly 1 billion do not pray the Rosary. "Yet, there are 1 billion Catholics who watch at least one movie every week," says producer Dennis Crow.
Production is slated to begin this Fall with an early 2017 release date which coincides with the 100th anniversary year of the miraculous apparitions of Mary at Fatima. The film's $320,000 budget will provide for production design; securing locations and permits; hiring cast, crew, stunt performers and specially trained animals; equipment packages; integrated CGI visual effects; an original musical score; audio mixing, and editing in time for the anticipated release.
