The Invitation follows diverse ecological champions from around the world as they find common ground with each other and with Pope Francis, who is featured in the film.

Facilitated by Deborah Castellano Lubov, correspondent for Vatican News and contributor to NBC News, the event will feature:

  • A trailer of the film along with footage of Pope Francis and ecological champions. This will be the first time this material is shown to the general public. The event will not be recorded and clips will not be available after the event. Because this footage is not yet released, recording it is prohibited.
  • Remarks by Fr. Joshtrom Kureethadam, head of the ecology sector in the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, Nicolas Brown, director of The Invitation, and Arouna Kandé, administrative assistant at Maison de la Gare and a climate refugee featured in the film.
  • An open question and answer session, during which viewers can ask questions.

Friendly Reminder: Registration is required to view the one-time-only screening at this link.
