The Letter, tells the story of a journey to Rome of frontline leaders to discuss the encyclical letter Laudato Si’ with Pope Francis. The exclusive dialogue with the Pope, included in the film, offers a revealing insight into the personal history of Pope Francis and stories never seen since he became the Bishop of Rome.
The Letter follows five people from different parts of the world who receive an invitation to visit Pope Francis. They include a climate refugee from Senegal where nearly 80% of peope lie in poverty, a teenage activist from India, two marine biologists from the United States and the leader of an indigenous community in Brazil, who has been kidnapped and tortured by mercenaries due to his opposition to illegal logging.
They are accompanied on their trip to the Vatican by FaithInvest’s Lorna Gold, who is also Chair of the Laudato Si’ Movement which is behind the project. ‘By sharing how Laudato Si’ has inspired so many people around the world, we want to bring a message of hope that we can come together to care for our common home,’ said Lorna.
