The Vatican Information Service reported today that a documentary will be published on the new pontificate. The documentary is titled, “Francesco – Elezione di un Papa che viene dalla fine del mondo” (Francis: Election of a Pope from the Ends of the Earth) … made in collaboration with the Officina della Comunicazione (OC) and the Italian newspaper, Il Corriere della Sera.
The DVD will be distributed as a supplement to the Friday, 2 April edition of the newspaper.” On its own the Italian version will cost 10.90 euro; English, Spanish and French editions are planned.
“The documentary registers the events following Pope Benedict XVI’s renunciation of the papacy, the days of the Sede Vacante, and the conclave that brought the election of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the new Pope. Through images and previously unpublished interviews with four cardinals–Cardinal Angelo Comastri, archpriest of the Basilica of St. Peter; Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras; Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture; and Cardinal Angelo Sodano, dean of the College of Cardinals–it reconstructs the most important stages of this period, culminating in the meeting of the two pontiffs this past Saturday, 23 March, in Castel Gandolfo.”
