Netflix Original Doc Series Based on Pope Francis Book


Netflix has lined up an original documentary series based on Sharing the Wisdom of Time, the award-winning book written by Pope Francis.

The series shares a tale of elders and their lived experiences, told through the eyes of the younger generation. Women and men over age 70 from all around the world will journey with and tell their stories to filmmakers under the age of 30 who are from the same country. The four-episode docuseries will feature Pope Francis throughout with an exclusive interview.

The documentary series, by Simona Ercolani, is produced by Stand By Me, partner of Asacha Media Group, and it will be made available globally on Netflix in 2021.
