Vatican-Produced Pope Francis Documentary Hits Theaters in May
Wim Wender‚Äôs ‚ÄúPope Francis ‚Äď A Man of His Word‚ÄĚ will open in domestic theaters on May 18, 2018, Focus Features announced Wednesday.
Written and directed by three-time Academy Award nominee Wender, the documentary is a rare co-production with the Vatican itself. It features behind-the-scenes footage and the Pope addresses his audience directly while answering questions about life, death, social justice and immigration, among other topics.
The film shows the pope during many journeys around the world, including footage of him speaking at the United Nations, addressing the Congress of the United States, and he also speaks to prisoners in correctional facilities as well as refugees in Mediterranean Land. In it, he also travels to the Holy Land, Africa, South America and Asia....
The Vatican can relax instead of a boring one on Franny apparently there have been some hot ones put out about other popes. They should serve the purpose of describing the papacy accurately.
Ishaan Tharoor wrote: Pope Alexander VI: A Spanish-born pontiff from the powerful Borgia family, Pope Alexander VI was infamous for his libertine behavior and nepotism. The latter was unsurprising ‚ÄĒ after all, his uncle was Pope Callixtus III, who had paved the way for Alexander's eventual ascension. Alexander was pope between 1492 and 1503. The intrigues, orgies and skulduggery that took place during his pontificate were enough to lead to a recent Showtime TV series, which reveled in the debaucheries and conspiracies of the Borgia family. Suggestions persist to this day that Alexander engaged in incest with his daughter, Lucrezia. When he died, his body rapidly decomposed and bloated, leading to suspicions of poisoning.
