It's been four years since Kirk Cameron appeared in the impactful marriage film "Fireproof," but he hasn't been resting. Working on his latest film "Monumental," Cameron is looking to make an even bigger impact this time around, tackling family, politics, and spirituality in America.
"Monumental: In Search of America's National Treasure" is Cameron's latest effort. The film captures his personal journey through American and European history, visiting historical sites to capture what has made America the "freest, securest, prosperous, and healthy" nation in the world.
With the country plagued by a spiritual, political, and economic decline in America, Cameron takes this journey in hopes of starting the healing process from its roots – the American family.
"Now this is my project, but it's about all of us, it's about our kids and securing a monumental future for them," he said in speaking about the film. "How do we teach them the truths that will set them free internally and externally for the world that they live in and secure their future?"
Telling the story of early Americans who sacrificed for liberty, "Monumental" shares stories of faith and how it helped to shape the fibers of America, including education, civic life, and government.
"I decided to travel across the U.S. and Europe to discover the true national treasure of America. I wanted to find out who the people were who built this country – the heroic men and women who sacrificed everything to be free and give their children and their grand children freedom and prosperity."
