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. This is a film 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. A true departure in moviemaking from the great director of PARIS, TEXAS, BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB and THE AMERICAN FRIEND, Wim Wenders. PG. 96 Min.
