First Trailer for Wim Wenders' Doc 'Pope Francis - A Man of His Word'
"We need to learn to listen. Differences always scare us." Focus Features has debuted the triumphant first trailer for Wim Wenders' latest documentary, titled Pope Francis - A Man of His Word, a look at the uniqueness of this current Pope - Pope Francis, originally from Argentina. The doc film is intended to be a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him. Instead, it focuses more on his ideas and messages he has spoken about, and his answers to today's global questions. This new Pope is crazy progressive and very intelligent, and has been saying some important things about greed and money and compassion and how we can make things better. It's actually impressive, and this doc might be one of the best stories about this holy man. It seems like a fairly straight-forward doc, still worth watching.
