    THE ORDER’S FRIENDSHIP WITH THE PAPACY

    FRANCIS: THE POPE FROM THE NEW WORLD

    On March 13, 2013 the world was introduced to Pope Francis. He was the first Pope from the Americas, the first Jesuit, and the first to take the name Francis. Within days he had captured the hearts of the world through his gestures of humility and care for the common man. Yet he remained largely unknown. Francis: The Pope From the New World unveils the personality, passion and extraordinary faith of the new Pope. Filmed on location in Buenos Aires, and featuring interviews with close friends, collaborators, and his official biographer, this documentary traces the remarkable rise of Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

    From growing up surrounded by soccer games and tango music to his defense of the poor and marginalized of Buenos Aires during his time as archbishop, Francis: The Pope From the New World explores the abiding compassion and unwavering resolve of a priest, a bishop and now a pope seeking to bring the Church to the margins of society. From overcoming the challenges of the day — including Argentina’s Dirty War — to his tireless advocacy for the poor, this film paints an indelible portrait of a towering figure of our time.

    John Paul II in America: Uniting a Continent

    John Paul II in America: Uniting a Continent explores how the papacy of St. John Paul II left an indelible mark on the American continent. Driven by his singular conviction of a “United American Continent” under the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe, John Paul II’s papal travels from Argentina to Alaska generated massive crowds, shaped an entire generation and ultimately changed the course of history.
