Pope Francis – An authentic man / Pope Francis: The Man of his Word /
Swiss-American documentary, 96 minutes, 2018
Directed by: Wim Wenders
Age limit – 12
April, 18, 2019

The three Oscar-nominated Wim Wenders (over Paris, Texas, Berlin, Sky, Buena Vista Social Club, Salt of Life) can get insight into Pope’s travel and religion views, while the head of the church gives honest questions about general issues serious, sometimes humorous, responses such as death, social and economic inequalities, immigration, ecology and the role of the family.

The Pope Francis – An authentic man is one of the rare creations made in close cooperation with the Vatican. The director gained an unparalleled insight into the life of the Pope: he has been accompanying him for more than two years, and the Vatican TV Archive has also provided the exclusive recordings of Pope Francis around the world. Thanks to the visual style used in the film, viewers can come close to the pope, who personally addresses the audience.

Projection sites beside Budapest Uránia National Film Theater will be throughout the major cities in Hungary.
