VERTEIDIGER DES GLAUBENS
Germany 2019. Director: Christoph Röhl. Documentary film. 95 mins. DCP
Director Christoph Röhl tells the story of the German Pope Benedict XVI, the second in the long history of the Church to resign from his office as God’s representative on earth. He portrays a churchman who fails to preserve the institution and its values and instead led it into its greatest crisis. Archive material and conversations with contemporary witnesses provide insights into how Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger went from reformer to conservative critic of modern society.
