Pope Francis: A Man of His Word (PG)
In this insightful and personal portrait of Pope Francis, Wim Wenders (Paris, Texas and Wings of Desire) brings his specific visual style to create a thoughtful documentary. We see Pope Francis deep in concern for the poor, environmental issues, social justice, and calling for peace. It is an intimate investigation and a meditation on ‘nearness’, both in its proximity to its subject, and in its approach to the value of religion and community.
“German filmmaker Wim Wenders gives viewers a vivid sense of what it’s like to follow Pope Francis as he travels the globe.
