A moving story of faith and friendship in time of war, and for generations—premieres nationwide July 1 as the nation commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.

White, Candace Cameron Bure, Rebecca St. James and Si Robertson, Duck Dynasty’s “Uncle Si,” who is a Vietnam veteran. Carey Scott directs. Pure Flix and Samuel Goldwyn Films distribute.

“From Vietnam battlefields to emotional battlefields of today, FAITH OF OUR FATHERS shows the power of faith in God to transform lives,” Producer Bobby Downes said. “Uplifting and encouraging, FAITH OF OUR FATHERS is an important journey—one that brings honor and, hopefully, healing to vets and families affected by their great sacrifices.”

Faith of our fathers movie poster“So many young men who went to Vietnam never came home,” said Si Robertson. “Hey,  they left families behind who never got to know those great guys. This story is about two sons on a road trip to learn about their dads. It’s a story about Vietnam, but it happens in all wars, and I’m proud to be part of a film that helps bring peace to people.”

SYNOPSIS
With the Vietnam War raging in 1969, two young fathers report for duty. A man of great faith and a doubtful cynic. A quarter-century later, their sons, Wayne and John Paul (David A.R. White and Kevin Downes), meet as strangers. Guided by letters handwritten from their fathers from the battlefield, they embark on an unforgettable journey to The Wall—the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Along the way, they discover the devastation of war cannot break the love of a father for his son.

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS is coming out at a strategically important time in American history as our nation is currently commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War,” said Chaplain (Maj. Gen.) Doug Carver, USA-Retired, 22nd Army Chief of Chaplains (2007-2011).

Beginning July 1, stand up for faith, freedom and fatherhood as Pure Flix, the studio that created GOD’S NOT DEAD, presents FAITH OF OUR FATHERS. A story of fatherhood. A journey of brotherhood.

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS honors all of those who served,” said Pure Flix Co-Founder and President Michael Scott. “Pure Flix is thrilled to partner with Downes Brothers and Samuel Goldwyn as we commemorate this important moment in our nation’s history.”

“Samuel Goldwyn Films is about unique voices bringing original stories to a wide audience,” said Meyer Gottlieb, president of Samuel Goldwyn. “In that spirit, FAITH OF OUR FATHERS is a fresh look at brotherhood forged in battle and love’s lasting power into future generations.”
