The Office of Mission and Identity (M&I) has purchased 30 tickets to the North American virtual premiere of Francesco taking place this Sunday, October 25 at 3:00 p.m. EST  at the SCAD Savannah Film Festival. The event includes a Q&A with the director after the screening.

Francesco” takes an unsparing look at the most pressing challenges of the 21st century, asking deep questions about the human condition. The film is guided by Pope Frances who, with tremendous humility, wisdom and generosity, offers moving lessons from his life that illuminate what it will take to build a better future. In doing so, he addresses issues such as climate change, immigration, peace and religious tolerance, LGBTQ support, gender and identity justice, and economic equality.

This film is very much in this week’s news—see the Washington Post article about Pope Francis endorsing same-sex unions and from Vatican News.
