Premiere date set for new S+L documentary The Francis Impact

Salt + Light Media

Salt + Light TV is pleased to announce the premiere of our highly anticipated documentary The Francis Impact !

“This is not a film about Francis changing the Church.
It is a film about the Church changing the world.

- Sebastian Gomes, Director

When Francis was elected pope in 2013, the Church unexpectedly found itself in a remarkable moment. Francis came seemingly out-of-the-blue, trailblazing and challenging all of us to keep pace as he recalibrated the Church’s mission, calling us to be more proactive and less reactive, outward-looking rather than inward-focused, bold and prone to mistakes rather than isolated and safe.
In 2014, Salt + Light Catholic Media Foundation released The Francis Effect – a documentary that shed light on the first year of Francis’ pontificate.
Now, five years later, The Francis Impact, releasing on May 5, will take a different focus on the same man.
“The Francis Impact features a variety of remarkable stories, including ordinary people working on the margins, bishops, and those outside the Church who see Francis as a partner in dialogue, a unique moral voice, and a beacon of hope for all of humanity,” said Sebastian Gomes, Director, The Francis Effect and The Francis Impact. “This is not a film about Francis changing the Church. It is a film about the Church changing the world.”
