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.
Pope Francis – A Man of His Word offers a compelling look at the pontiff’s ideas and message.
While the film is best for fans of the cloth, non-Catholics, too, will gain insight into one of the most prominent leaders in the world.
It slyly dispenses with that old canard that we must know the artist intimately to feel moved, humbled and astonished by his art.
Whether he's washing the feet of prisoners in America, visiting sick children in Africa, or praying with hurricane victims in Asia, Pope Francis doesn't merely preach empathy, responsibility, and accountability, he lives it.
