‘Pope Francis: A Man of His Word’ documentary at the IFI
In advance of this month’s papal visit to Ireland, Wim Wenders’ new documentary on the current Bishop of Rome receives a cinema release. ‘Pope Francis: A Man of His Word’ is intended to be a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him.
Consisting mostly of interviews in which the Pope holds forth honestly and without hesitation on a range of topics including the wealth of the Church, the film is at its best when at its simplest, with the former Jorge Bergoglio coming across as a man of supreme decency and compassion who truly believes in practising what he preaches.
Tickets are now available online at ifi.ie or by calling the IFI Box Office on 01-6793477.
