From the award-winning filmmaker Wim Wenders (The Salt of the Earth, Pina, Wings of Desire) comes a new documentary that is giving viewers a rare look into the inner workings of Pope Francis and his mission to bring a divided world together.

Only the second co-production that the Vatican has made with outside filmmakers and the first to feature a Pope addressing an audience directly, "Pope Francis - A Man of His Word" is also offering the Pope another platform to spread his message globally.

The documentary, which was acquired by Focus Features, will be released in theatrically on May 18th.

"Pope Francis - A Man of His Word," is intended to be a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him. The pope's ideas and his message are central to this documentary, which sets out to present his work of reform and his answers to today's global questions. From his deep concern for the poor and wealth inequality, to his involvement in environmental issues and social justice, Pope Francis engages the audience face-to-face and calls for peace.
