Pope Francis - A Man Of His Word
CAST: Various DIRECTOR: Wim Wenders CAPTIONED ON WEDNESDAYS | ENDS 5/31
Wim Wenders' new documentary, "Pope Francis - A Man of His Word," is intended to be a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him. The pope's ideas and his message are central to this documentary, which sets out to present his work of reform and his answers to today's global questions. From his deep concern for the poor and wealth inequality, to his involvement in environmental issues and social justice, Pope Francis engages the audience face-to-face and calls for peace.
It is a pleasure to watch the present-day Francis interact with people all over the world and articulate his hopes for improving the lot of the poor.Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter
One of Pope Francis' closing messages rings out, undiluted by a muddled conclusion: "We have so much to do, and we must do it together."Kate Erbland, indieWire
