Film PLus Pre-recorded Panel

Join us for a one-time screening of the new documentary In Viaggio: The Travels Of Pope Francis followed by a pre-recorded, video of a conversation featuring a panel of experts and faith leaders discussing Pope Francis, his mission and methods, and issues raised in the documentary. 

MOre about the film

In the first nine years of his pontificate, Pope Francis made 37 trips visiting 53 countries, focusing on his most important issues: poverty, migration, the environment, solidarity and war. Intrigued by the fact that two of Francis's trips - the first to the refugees landing in Lampedusa; the second in 2021 to the Middle East - so closely mirrored the itineraries of his films Fuocoammare (Fire At Sea, 2016) and Notturno (2020), Rosi follows the Pope's Stations of the Cross. He sees what he sees, hears what he says and creates a dialogue between archival footage of Francis' travels, images taken by Rosi himself, recent history and the state of the world today.

More about the panel

The video of the panel will play immediately following the film. 

The participants are
Ricardo da Silva, S.J. (Jesuit priest, assoc. editor America Media, Columbia Journalism School)
Christiana Zenner (Theology/Ethics/Ecology Professor)
Natalia Imperatori-Lee (Theologian at Manhattan College)
Joshua McElwee (editor, National Catholic Reporter)
Moderator: David Gibson - (award winning religion journalist and director of the Center on Religion and Culture at Fordham University)

The documentary is remarkable for its access into Pope Francis's life and its elegant footage, stylishly directed and edited by Gianfranco Rosi.

It doesn't offer easy answers, and it certainly doesn't suggest that the Catholic Church has them either -- but it's a moving reflection on the world's trials, and a tribute to those who seek to change them.
