Nashville, TN: – Actor/producer KIRK CAMERON has made national news headlines as he announced the release date for his most personal project to date regarding his faith in God. Cameron has invited audiences nationwide to join him on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, for his one-night live event of UNSTOPPABLE to nearly 700 theaters nationwide. (www.unstoppablethemovie.com).
UNSTOPPABLE created a social media firestorm when both Facebook and YouTube prohibited audience’s access to the film’s trailer, labeling it as “unsafe” and “abusive.” Over half a million of Cameron’s fans rallied to protest the blocking of the web site, and after several days, both social media sites allowed access. Followers of Cameron’s continue to rally online support, interacting at an incredible rate on his nearly 700,000-strong Facebook page.
UNSTOPPABLE is an artistic and compelling documentary that takes audiences on a journey to the beginning of creation, and chronicles events that offer a deeper meaning of the role that pain and suffering have in our lives. UNSTOPPABLE will prompt audiences to consider their personal views on faith, and encourage conversation starters about God, suffering, and hope.
Cameron, who has been scrutinized by liberal audiences for standing firm on his Christian views of faith, family, and morality, experienced record-breaking success for his 2012 one-night theatrical event Monumental.
“It’s easy to celebrate your faith when things seem to be going well in your life. But when we encounter tragedy or adversity in our lives, we often question ‘Where is God in all of this?’ We wrestle with our hearts and minds to understand the reasoning,” says Cameron. “In UNSTOPPABLE, I take you on a personal voyage into the depths of my faith, based on something that happened in my life. We discover not only is there an answer to this pivotal question, there is great hope in it as well!”
UNSTOPPABLE will be broadcast to nearly 700 cinemas nationwide from The Vines Center at Liberty University—the largest Christian university in the world—in Lynchburg, Va., on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT and tape delayed at 7:00 p.m. MT / 8:00 p.m. PT/AK/HI. Tickets and theatre locations are available online at www.unstoppablethemovie.com.
The event will feature music from guests that include Dove nominated artist Warren Barfield, whose song “Love is Not a Fight” was featured in the independent blockbuster film “Fireproof”, and former American Idol contestant and Grammy and Dove nominated recording artist Mandisa.
