Title: FRANCIS: THE POPE OF THE NEW WORLD
On March 13, 2013 the world was introduced to Pope Francis. He was the first Pope from the Americas, the first Jesuit, and the first to take the name Francis. Within days he had captured the hearts of the world through his gestures of humility and care for the common man. Yet he remained largely unknown. This film unveils the personality, passion, and extraordinary faith of the new Pope. Filmed on location in Buenos Aires and featuring interviews with close friends, collaborators, and his official biographer, this documentary traces the remarkable rise of Jorge Mario Bergoglio. It also explores the abiding compassion and unwavering resolves of a priest, a bishop and now a Pope seeking to bring the Church to the frontiers of society. Available in English and Spanish. 51 minutes.
