Pope Francis – A Man of His Word

  • Dir: Wim Wenders

  • Germany/Vatican City, 2018, 98minmins, DCP

An unexpected turn from the versatile German filmmaker – who knew Wim Wenders had been raised Catholic? Provided rare access to the pope, Wenders follows and listens rather than interrogating his subject. Hence the subtle force of the film lies in the very nearness of a leader who feels the church has become a “field hospital after a battle.” Facing global challenges of doctrinal change, social inequality and environmental issues, Pope Francis offers answers both smaller and larger, framed by his individual interactions and words among the poor, the children, and the condemned.
