Pope Francis – A Man of His Word: dir Wim Wenders (2018)
18 April 2019 @ 7.00 pm - 8.30 pmAED 30
Wim Wenders was asked by the Vatican to make this film, intended to be a personal journey with the Pope rather than a biographical documentary about him, and clearly the director was impressed (Wenders says the Vatican had no editorial control over the film).
It shows as part of CineMAS, a short indie-oriented film festival at Manarat al Saadiyat (16-20 April) which has arrived with little fanfare. CineMAS promises “a carefully curated selection of the best under-the-radar short ﬁlms, documentaries, comedies and dramas” plus a chance to meet the people behind these cinematic experiences.
