The latest from Oscar®-nominated director and producer Evgeny Afineevsky (WINTER ON FIRE: UKRAINE'S FIGHT FOR FREEDOM), FRANCESCO examines the work of Pope Francis and his responses to the most pressing issues of the 21st century — economic stratification, race and gender inequality, the climate crisis, xenophobia and others — while shining a light on the challenges and consequences that have led us to this moment in time. FRANCESCO is not a biographical film about Pope Francis in the traditional sense. Rather, the documentary provides a glimpse into his work addressing the urgent issues of the moment: climate change, immigration, peace and religious tolerance, the LGBTQ+ community, gender and identity justice, health and economic equality. The result is an intimate look at a global leader and his quest to provide hope and inspiration during one of the most unprecedented moments in modern history. Winner, Movie for Humanity Award, 2020 Kineo Awards; Winner, Best Documentary, President's Humanitarian Award, 2020 Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. Official Selection, 2020 Rome and DOC NYC film festivals.
