Francis, the Pope Who Wants to Change the World

Written and directed by Hugues Nancy

This film is a thriller taking place in the world's smallest, most secretive and undoubtedly one of its most powerful states.


What if the election of Pope Francis was the miracle that the small Vatican State had been waiting for? What if the cardinals gathered in conclave had had a survival reaction in the face of the insurmountable difficulties facing the Catholic Church? Telling the story of how Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected for the first time on television means telling the story of today's Church, with its clans, its power games and its unmentionable secrets. It also tells the story of the Church over the last forty years.
