Actor Kirk Cameron‘s ’Monumental‘ Film Looks to Rediscover America’s ‘National Treasure’

Billy Hallowell

Kirk Cameron sees that something isn't quite right here in America. The "Growing Pains" actor, who is now a well-known Evangelical speaker and leader, has set out to tackle some tough issues in his new documentary, "Monumental." In the film, Cameron explores the problems that exist in American society, while delving into ways in which we can recapture the country's "national treasure" and return to our roots. "There is something seriously sick in the soul of our country," Cameron proclaims in the film. " Here's a synopsis:

What’s wrong with America, and how can we make it right? This is the question Kirk Cameron asks as he retraces the footsteps of our forefathers in the hope of rediscovering America’s true “national treasure.” What made us one of the most exceptional nations the world has ever seen? How did we stray from such a great beginning? Journey with Kirk throughout America and Europe as he explores the foundational doctrines and governing principles on which America was founded. In the end, he realizes that the key to restoring our country is it is not a grand, top-down program that begins in the Oval Office. It begins with our families, around our dinner tables as we seek to renew our nation from the bottom up.

"What I've discovered is that our history has not just been forgotten -- it's been re-written," Cameron says in the film. "Time is flying by too quickly and our children's futures won't wait. We've got to do something now." At CPAC this month, he addressed the audience and reiterated these same concerns. "As I look around I get this sinking feeling that we’re off track, that there’s something sick in the soul of our country," he said. "I examine the fruit that’s hanging on the tree of America and I can see that it’s rotting. And that concerns me deeply." Watch the trailer for "Monumental" below:
