DANIELE LUCHETTI debuted as assistant director for Nanni Moretti. Luchetti’s first film as director was Domani accadrà, which won a David di Donatello as best first film. His most recent films are Mio fratello è figlio unico, for which Elio Germano won the David di Donatello as best actor and La nostra vita, which was the only Italian film selected for official competition at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

“Bergoglio” is an extraordinary figure, open to a wealth of interpretations. The film ends the day that he is elected Pope. The movie depicts his human and spiritual adventure from his vocation to the years of training in the Jesuits, from the harsh experience of the dictatorship up until his pastoral mission amongst the poorest people of Buenos Aires. This is the story of the Pope who tried to bring the Church back to its true mission. Il film racconta il percorso che ha portato Jorge Bergoglio, figlio di immigrati italiani a Buenos Aires, alla guida della Chiesa Cattolica. È un viaggio umano e spirituale durato più di mezzo secolo, sullo sfondo di un paese, l’Argentina, che ha vissuto momenti storici controversi. Il racconto si conclude con l’indimenticabile serata in cui, a piazza San Pietro stracolma di folla, Jorge Bergoglio vestito di bianco e con una croce di ferro, saluterà il mondo con il nome di Francesco, con la schietta semplicità e l’umanità profonda con cui tutti siamo abituati a conoscerlo.
