CHIAMATEMI FRANCESCO - IL PAPA DELLA GENTE
Daniele Luchetti, Martín Salinas, based on the book "Francisco. El Papa de la gente" by Evangelina Himitian
festival & awards:
Bergoglio is an extraordinary figure, with a wealth of interpretations; the film ends the day that he is elected Pope, “Call me Francesco” depicts his human and spiritual adventure from his vocation to the years of training in the Jesuits, from the harsh experience of the dictatorship up until his pastoral mission amongst the poorest people of Buenos Aires, before being called to the Papal throne. The enthralling story of the Pope who attempts to bring the Church back to its true mission.
The story ends with the unforgettable evening in which Jorge Bergoglio, dressed in white and with an iron cross, will greet the world with the name of Francis and with the honest simplicity and profound humanity that we have come to know so well.
