The Francis Impact, a 90-minute documentary look at Pope Francis’ impact on specific individuals and communities around the world, will debut at 8 pm ET this Sunday,May 5, over free streamer Salt + Light.
The stories told include the aftermath of a mosque massacre in Quebec City, a refugee crisis on the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa, a battle against metal mining in El Salvador, and how the Pope’s reform of the marriage annulment process affected a single couple in St. Cloud, Minn.
The Francis Impact is a follow-up to producer Sebastian Gomes’ 2014 documentary, The Francis Effect, which looked at how the Catholic Church was changing rapidly during Pope Francis’ first year. You can stream that doc for $2.99 from Vimeo.
