Film Festival Features K of C-Produced Documentary on Pope Francis
A documentary produced by the Knights of Columbus on the life of Pope Francis – from his childhood and Church role in Argentina to his election as pope – will make its big screen debut at the John Paul II International Film Festival on Saturday, April 12, at 3:15 p.m. at the Paragon Grove 13 theater in Miami.
The documentary, Francis: The Pope From the New World, traces the remarkable rise of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who, just a year ago, became the first pope from the Americas. The documentary was primarily filmed on location in Argentina and features interviews with close friends, co-workers, his biographer, and those living in poverty in Buenos Aires.
"The film brings to life the story few people know – the story of Jorge Bergoglio, who came from humble beginnings and relative obscurity and is now the leader of the Catholic Church,” said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, one of the documentary’s executive producers. "It is fitting that the life of Pope Francis be featured at a film festival named in honor of Blessed John Paul II since it was Pope John Paul who named Bergoglio archbishop and cardinal, and it is Pope Francis who will name John Paul II a saint.”
