Originally released as a motion picture in 2022.
Wide screen.
In 2015, Pope Francis wrote Laudato Si', a letter to every single person in the world, confronting the looming calamity of human impact on Earth and ourselves. It is one of the most ambitious and revolutionary papal statements in history since it is directed not just to Catholics, but to everyone on the planet and it outlines the most critical environmental and social issues that we collectively face. There are four 'voices' that Pope Francis calls specifically for in Laudato Si₂: the Voice of the Poor, the Indigenous, the Youth, and Wildlife. Voices are too often not listened to in today's world. We witness a series of letters exit the Vatican, traveling across the globe, to Senegal, Brazil, India, and Hawaii. These are invitations to five remarkable human beings to an unprecedented dialogue with the Pope. A dialogue where we become caretakers of this planet we call home.
DVD, wide screen.
