"Long celebrated for his role in the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, John Paul's crusade for human rights and religious freedom also transformed the West. "John Paul II in America" explores the pope's pivotal role in the fall of dictatorships in Chile, Haiti, Paraguay and Brazil. From celebrations of World Youth Days with millions to pastoral visits to the favelas of Brazil; from his historic 1998 visit to Cuba to his tireless defense of workers rights and indigenous peoples - "John Paul II in America" captures the raw emotions and spontaneous thrills of this remarkable pontificate. Featuring rare archival footage and insightful analysis from leading figures including John Paul biographer George Weigel, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, Cardinal Seán Patrick O'Malley, O.F.M. Cap., and former papal spokesperson Joaquín Navarro-Valls; viewers will be both intrigued and moved by this film's unprecedented new framework for understanding one of the giants of our times." --On container.
