John Paul II in America: Uniting a Continent

The papacy of St. John Paul II left an indelible mark on the American continent. Driven by his singular conviction of a “United American Continent “under the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe, his papal travels from Argentina to Alaska generated massive crowds, shaped an entire generation, and ultimately changed the course of history.

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 works 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.

Juan Pablo II en América: Uniendo a un Continente

El papado de San Juan Pablo II dejó una marca indeleble en el continente Americano. Impulsado por su convicción particular de un “Continente Americano Unido”, bajo el patronato de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, sus viajes papales desde Argentina hasta Alaska atrajeron a grandes muchedumbres, conformaron a toda una generación, y finalmente cambiaron el curso de la historia.

La cruzada de Juan Pablo II por los derechos humanos y la libertad religiosa, que ha sido muy aplaudida por su papel en la caída del comunismo en Europa del Este, también transformó el Occidente. Juan Pablo II en América explora el papel determinante del Papa en la caída de las dicta- duras del continente. Desde las celebraciones de las Jornadas Mundiales de la Juventud con millones de asistentes hasta sus visitas pastorales a las favelas de Brasil, desde su histórica visita a Cuba en 1998 hasta su incansable defensa de los derechos de los trabajadores y los indígenas, Juan Pablo II en América capta las emociones en vivo y el entusiasmo espontáneo de su extraordinario pontificado.

Con tomas de archivo excepcionales e inteligentes análisis de personajes importantes, como el biógrafo de Juan Pablo II George Weigel, el Caballero Supremo Carl Anderson, el Cardenal Seán Patrick O’Malley, O.F.M. Cap., y el que fue portavoz del Papa, Joaquín Navarro Valls, los espectadores se sentirán intrigados y emocionados por este nuevo marco sin precedentes para comprender a uno de los gigantes de nuestra época
