Papst Franziskus – Ein Mann seines Wortes
Universal Pictures presents the German of Pope Francis – A MAN OF HIS WORD / Papst Franziskus – EIN MANN SEINES WORTES, a personal journey with Pope Francis. 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. The film’s direct-to-camera visual and narrative concepts engage the audience face-to-face with the pope, creating a dialogue between him and, literally, the world.
Throughout the film, Pope Francis shares his vision of the Church and his deep concern for the poor, his involvement in environmental issues and social justice, and his call for peace in areas of conflict and between world religions. There is also a presence of Saint Francis in the film, connecting back to the pope’s namesake, through accounts of legendary moments in the Saint’s own life as a reformer and ecologist.
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.
