WATCH: Rick Santorum’s Film Company Already Working On Hobby Lobby Doc

Rick Santorum’s production company said Monday that it would release a documentary film exploring the retail chain Hobby Lobby’s legal case against the Obamacare contraception mandate, the same day the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the chain’s Christian owners.

A trailer for the film, called “One Generation Away,” teases interviews with the likes of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) between images of a young girl walking through a field to a cross.

“The cross is ubiquitous,” a voice in the trailer states. “It’s the preeminent symbol of Christianity. It’s a government advertisement for one religion.”

EchoLight Studios president Jeff Sheets said the film “clearly presents the complex perspective on important issues, like the recent Hobby Lobby case, that your average Christian American doesn’t think about every day,” as quoted by The Hollywood Reporter.

The film is slated to be released Sept. 1.
