After presenting it at the 71st Festival de Cannes as a special screening, director Wim Wenders landed in Rome to present to the Italian audience his Pope Francis – A Man of His Word, his latest documentary which is described as a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary. The filmmaker unveils some details about his first meeting with Pope Francis and how this encounter changed his view on many things and taught him not to be constantly afraid of everything starting from other people’s opinions to death.

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.
