The film 'Pope Francis: A Man of the Word' is written and directed by the three times Oscared director, Wim Wenders. It is a biographical document that pretends to follow a personal journey of the Pope and tries to be a film with Pope Francis and not about Pope Francis (as all the biographical films tend to show). Francisco and his message of hope are the fundamental pillars of this film, in which he presents his reforms and some of his answers to the big questions in life: death, justice, ecology, poverty, materialism and family. A dialogue between him and the world. All these voices and faces that are part of the documentary are a small representative sample of humanity that joins this talk with Pope Francis.
