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. The film’s direct-to-cam­era visu­al and nar­ra­tive con­cepts engage the audi­ence face-to-face with the pope, cre­at­ing a dia­logue between him and, lit­er­al­ly, the world. Tak­ing ques­tions from peo­ple of all walks of life, Pope Fran­cis responds to farm­ers and work­ers, refugees, chil­dren and the elder­ly, prison inmates, and those who live in fave­las and migrant camps. All of these voic­es and faces are a cross sec­tion of human­i­ty that join in a con­ver­sa­tion with Pope Fran­cis. While this “sym­pho­ny of ques­tions” pro­vides the back­bone for the film, it also shows the pope on his many jour­neys around the world, with footage of him speak­ing at the Unit­ed Nations, address­ing the Con­gress of the Unit­ed States, mourn­ing with those gath­ered at Ground Zero and at Yad Vashem, the World Holo­caust Remem­brance Cen­ter in Jerusalem. He speaks to pris­on­ers in cor­rec­tion­al facil­i­ties and to refugees in Mediter­ranean camps. We see him trav­el to the Holy Land (Pales­tine and Israel) as well as to Africa, South Amer­i­ca and Asia. Through­out the film, Pope Fran­cis shares his vision of the Church and his deep con­cern for the poor, his involve­ment in envi­ron­men­tal issues and social jus­tice, and his call for peace in areas of con­flict and between world reli­gions. There is also a pres­ence of Saint Fran­cis in the film, con­nect­ing back to the pope’s name­sake, through accounts of leg­endary moments in the Saint’s own life as a reformer and ecol­o­gist. In an era of deep dis­trust of politi­cians and peo­ple in pow­er, when lies and cor­rup­tion and alter­na­tive facts are the order of the day, Pope Fran­cis — A Man of His Word shows us a per­son who lives what he preach­es and who has gained the trust of peo­ple of all faith tra­di­tions and cul­tures across the world. Pope Fran­cis — A Man of His Word is pro­duced by Mr. Wen­ders with Saman­ta Gan­dolfi Bran­ca, Alessan­dro Lo Mona­co (The World’s Small­est Army), Andrea Gam­bet­ta and David Rosier (The Salt of the Earth). The film is a pro­duc­tion of Célestes Images, Cen­tro Tele­vi­si­vo Vat­i­cano, Solares Fon­dazione delle Arti, PTS Art’s Fac­to­ry, Neue Road Movies, Fon­dazione Solares Suisse, and Decia Films.
