Pure Flix recently announced the July 1 release date for "Faith of Our Fathers," a new film commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War with a star-studded cast.
The moving story of faith and friendship features an exemplary list of talents that include Stephen Baldwin and former "Full House" star Candace Cameron Bure, who marks her return to feature films with the release. Furthermore, "Faith of Our Fathers" sees David A.R. White and "Duck Dynasty" star Si Robertson, who is a Vietnam veteran, among many more.
"So many young men who went to Vietnam never came home," Robertson said in a statement. "Hey, they left families behind who never got to know those great guys. This story is about two sons on a road 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."
"Faith of Our Fathers," which also stars Kevin Downes and Rebecca St. James, was helmed by "I Am… Gabriel" director Carey Scott. And from the same studio that created "God's Not Dead," the film stands up for faith, freedom and fatherhood. Furthermore, the July 1 premiere occurs just as the U.S. commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
"From Vietnam battlefields to emotional battlefields of today, 'Faith of Our Father' shows the power of faith in God to transform lives," the film's producer and brother of Kevin Downes, Bobby Downes. "Uplifting and encouraging, 'Faith of Our Fathers' is an important journey – one that brings honor and, hopefully, healing to vets and families by their great sacrifices."
Meanwhile, "Faith of Our Fathers" follows two men, Wayne (White) and John Paul (Downes) whose fathers served in the Vietnam War, which raged for almost 20 years in the Southeast Asian nation. A quarter-century after their fathers' duty, Wayne and John Paul meet each other for the first time during a journey to The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Along the way, they discover that not even war can break the love of father and son.
