Is there hope for America?
The new film America! America! God Shed His Grace on Thee brings audiences to their feet, even in liberal California.
America! America! God Shed His Grace on Thee explores how Scripture and Judeo-Christian values were critical to the formation of the United States of America—and how that influence has been steadily eroded in the public square over the centuries.
“While elections are certainly important, what our nation really needs is to return to its biblical founding,” said Jeff Hunt, director of the Centennial Institute, chairman of the Western Conservative Summit, and executive producer of the film.
The film received two standing ovations at its private screening on Saturday, October 3, at Godspeak Calvary Chapel in Thousand Oaks, California, led by Senior Pastor Rob McCoy, who has come under fire for refusing to close his church’s doors while marijuana and liquor stores are permitted to remain open.
America! America! God Shed His Grace on Thee is directed by Christopher Burgard and produced by Nick Searcy. Burgard is an actor, award-winning producer, and co-founder of Little Bonanza Productions, LLC, who, along with his wife, Lisa, created and directed the documentary Border: The Divide Between the American Dream and the American Nightmare (2007). Searcy is an award-winning actor and director who played Chief Deputy Art Mullen on FX’s hit television series “Justified” (2010-2015) and directed the feature film Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer (2018).
