Pope Francis: A Man of His Word

"'Pope Francis: A Man of His Word' frequently feels like a crucial document of our time and essential non-fiction film-making. - Times (UK)

Intended as a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biography, director Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire, Buena Vista Social Club) uses a direct-to-camera visual and narrative concept to engage the audience face-to-face with the pope, creating a dialogue between him and a cross-section of humanity as he responds to questions from farmers and workers, refugees, children and the elderly, prison inmates, and those who live in favelas and migrant camps.

The Pope addresses his audience directly, answering questions on life, death, social justice, immigration, ecology, wealth inequality, materialism, and the role of the family. The film also shows the pope on his trips around the world, showing footage of his speech at the United Nations, addressing the Congress of the United States, mourning with those gathered at Ground Zero. He speaks to prisoners in correctional facilities and to refugees in Mediterranean camps. We see him travel to the Holy Land of Palestine and Israel as well as to Africa, South America and Asia. - Indiewire

"It's difficult not to be charmed by Francis' plainspoken demeanor, and his ability to retain the folksy conversational style of a simple parish priest even when speaking from the impossibly elevated confines of the Holy See." - Variety

"Emphasizes his humanity and humility. Those personal qualities and his words are sources of hope In this politically fraught and fevered age." - Seattle Times
