Francesco

Francesco

"Francesco offers an unprecedented look into the life of a pope — and not just any pope, but Pope Francis, whose compassionate and progressive approach is captured beautifully in Evgeny Afineevsky's film. Whether you are Catholic or not, you will be fascinated by this powerful portrait of a truly historic figure." - Hollywood Reporter

FRANCESCO takes an unsparing look at the most pressing issues of the 21st Century; economic stratification, race and gender inequality, the climate crisis, xenophobia and others; while shining a light on the challenges and consequences that have led us to this moment in time. As we embark on this journey, with Pope Francis as our guide, we discover a leader who demonstrates a tremendous amount of humility, wisdom and generosity towards all, and whose ideals can help us build a bridge to a better future to thrive as a global community.

FRANCESCO is not a biographical film about Pope Francis in the traditional sense. Rather, the documentary provides a glimpse into his work addressing so many issues of today; climate change, immigration, peace and religious tolerance, the LGBTQ+ community, gender and identity justice, health, and economic equality. As a result, we are given an example of leadership that provides hope and inspiration during one of the most unprecedented moments in our lives.
