Pope Francis – A Man of His Word trailer released by Focus
In celebration of the 5th Papal Anniversary of His Holiness, Focus Features has released the Pope Francis – A Man of His Word trailer. The film will open in United States theaters on May 18, 2018.
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.
Wenders is a three-time Academy Award nominee (Buena Vista Social Club, Pina, The Salt of the Earth) and made the film in a rare co-production with the Vatican.
Pope Francis – A Man of His Word is produced by 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.
