Pope Francis, who became the the 266th pope of the Roman Catholic Church in 2013, communicates his vision for his faith through interviews as well as footage of him giving speeches and living out the values he espouses. Pope Francis directly answers questions about faith from people of all ages and circumstances, including children, refugees and prison inmates. This documentary also compares Pope Francis with his namesake, Saint Francis of Assisi, who was concerned with the poor and marginalized and protecting the environment. Written and directed by Wim Wenders Co-produced by the Vatican.~Kaitlin Elise Miller
Wim Wenders' interview of Pope Francis is interesting. Watch it and then decide if you want to research Pope Francis in more depth. I am in the mood for hearing hope and positivism and was receptive to the overall message. Not Catholic and am aware of some of the controversies surrounding Pope Francis' past in Argentina. I simply wanted to watch something positive for a change.
The renowned German director, Wim Wenders, has done us a favor in giving us this documentary providing an insight into the mind and heart of this pope. Whether one is a believer or not, whether one agrees with the pope or not, Pope Francis is an influential world figure and this film can help people understand what he has to say and why he says it.
