The ‘Eyes of the Devil’ is a documentary by successful Polish director, screenwriter, writer and film producer, Patryk Vega, which reveals the horrifying industry of babies sold for their organs or to child brothels in Germany.
The buying and selling of children and their body parts is one of the most lucrative businesses in the world, catering to the very rich. The US is the #1 destination for sexually-trafficked children, most of whom are brought across the Mexican border. This business was severely disrupted by the Trump administration and as we now see, it is making up for lost time.
The film begins with Patryk explaining that he was tipped off about a pregnant woman in Poland who was trying to sell her baby. A child trafficking agent was brokering a deal for her that would bring in a large sum of money if she carried her baby to term and allowed him to sign the birth certificate as the father, so that the baby would not be reported as “missing.”
Patryk’s goal was to save the baby, and in the process create a documentary about the child trafficking industry. The documentary films his conversations with the mother selling her baby, the agent handler and the child trafficker. The voices and faces are altered but these conversations reveal for the first time how these businesses operate.
