From the moment Pope Francis appeared on the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica, he won the hearts of the people. With characteristic humility, simplicity and proximity to the poor, Francis has initiated a fundamental reform of the Roman Curia, challenged a “globalization of indifference,”
“This film is all about going deeper,” said producer Sebastian Gomes. “Going beneath the surface changes to try to understand the effect Francis is having, not just on the Catholic Church but on the entire world.”
The Francis Effect takes a critical and in-depth look at the emerging themes of Pope Francis' pontificate and how an ancient institution is rapidly changing under his leadership and vision.
