The new film aims to show how the Bible and Judeo-Christian values were deeply influential to the formation of the United States of America and how that influence has steadily eroded in the public square. Through engaging cinematography and interviews with well-known authors, political leaders, conservative commentators and nonprofit leaders, “America! America! God Shed His Grace on Thee” will make a compelling case for why the nation must return to Scripture and its founding documents.
“America! America! God Shed His Grace on Thee” weaves its story with the help of a constellation of voices, not just Nick Searcy’s. The film does that with many conservative stars including President Trump’s Housing and Urban Development secretary and former GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), former Breitbart News editor-at-large and Daily Wire founder and editor in chief Ben Shapiro, former New Left activist and author David Horowitz, Rush Limbaugh’s radio show wingman, Bo Snerdley, Salem Media Group radio host Dennis Prager, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Alveda King, actor and documentary director Dean Cain, and on a somewhat bittersweet note – contains the final interview given by the late, great Herman Cain.
Though the documentary was made in the midst of the Wuhan coronavirus, it feels ripped from the headlines, with current topics like the shutdowns keeping Americans from their places of worship, President Donald Trump standing in solidarity with St. John’s Church after it was set on fire by rioters, and the Masterpiece Cakeshop discrimination lawsuit factoring into the doc’s immersive, compelling narrative.
