2018 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Director Wim Wenders (11/8 ONLY)

Oscar-nominated for three documentaries, Wim Wenders (The Salt of the Earth, Pina, Buena Vista Social Club) trains his camera on the Argentine pontiff who has led the Catholic Church since 2013. His namesake, Saint Francis of Assisi, is famous for his love of nature, his devotion to the poor and his efforts to make peace with Islam during the Crusades. In long conversations to the camera, Pope Francis describes his hope for the world to live up to these ideals. Courtesy of Focus Features.
