Filmmakers and stars of the stirring new drama FAITH OF OUR FATHERS (watch trailer) join Duck Dynasty’s cast members at the film’s Monroe-area premiere for a “reverse red carpet” as local veterans walk the red carpet to cheering crowds and military fanfare.
FAITH OF OUR FATHERS, about Vietnam’s continuing effects in U.S. families, bypasses a traditional Hollywood premiere to honor all military personnel. The unusual red-carpet events roll out in West Monroe; Birmingham, Ala.; Fresno, Calif.; Sioux Falls, S.D.; Simi Valley; and Dallas.
ABOUT THE FILM:
From the Downes Brothers in association with Pure Flix, producer of the hit faith film GOD’S NOT DEAD, FAITH OF OUR FATHERS explores friendship and fathers. From Vietnam jungles to Deep South backwoods to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in DC, FAITH OF OUR FATHERS follows two young men who, because of Vietnam, missed knowing their fathers. The film marks the 50th anniversary of the start of the Vietnam War. Pure Flix and Samuel Goldwyn Films distribute.

In 1969 as the Vietnam War rages, two young fathers report for duty: one a man of great faith, the other a cynic. A quarter century later their sons, Wayne and John Paul (David A.R. White and Kevin Downes), meet as strangers. Guided by their father’s battlefield letters, the sons embark on a life-altering journey to The Wall—the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. On the way, they discover that war’s devastation cannot break a father’s love for his son. FAITH OF OUR FATHERS—A Story of Fatherhood. A Journey of Brotherhood.
FAITH OF OUR FATHERS is produced by Bobby Downes, Kevin Downes, Michael Scott and David A.R. White. Executive producers are Bill Herren, Kevin Malone and Christopher Morrow.
