POPE FRANCIS: A MAN OF HIS WORD is a documentary about the religious leader and his influence on the Catholic Church.

Disturbing images

There is footage of natural disasters, the Pope visiting people in hospitals, and the refugee crisis. The latter includes a boat capsizing, people being helped out of the water, medical workers carrying a body bag, and a dead body on a beach that has been partially covered. There is also archive footage of the Holocaust, depicting emaciated people in a concentration camp. None of these scenes contain graphic material, but it could upset some viewers.

Violence

Pope Francis is questioned about the abuse of minors by figures within the Catholic church. There is no graphic detail, and the Pope clearly condemns the behaviour of those involved.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
