Pope Francis seated next to another man in the film FRANCESCO

Starts March 26

“Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family” Nobody should be thrown out or made miserable because of it.” – Pope Francis

Did the Pope stray too far from Catholic Church Doctrine in comments he made supporting the LGBTQ community in the new documentary, FRANCESCO?

Born in Argentina, Francis is the first leader of the Catholic Church to come from the Americas and the Jesuit order. His teachings bring a progressive take on issues like the climate crisis, immigration, LGBTQ support, economic equality, and religious tolerance. Francesco showcases a voice of morality that serves as a powerful counterbalance to the rise of reactionary politics around the world.

FRANCESCO offers an opportunity to contextualize a Pope who recently signaled the limits to his reformist intentions, signing off on a Vatican decree that reaffirms old church teaching and bars priests from blessing same-sex unions.
