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

A still from the trailer for Rick Santorum's film exploring the Supreme Court's decision in the Hobby Lobby case.

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
