Inside the Vatican

Filmed over the course of the fifth year of Pope Francis’ pontificate, INSIDE THE VATICAN provides rare behind-the-scenes access to one of the most important places in the Christian world.
Nestled in the city of Rome, the Vatican is the headquarters of the Catholic Church and an independent city-state. From the pope himself to the head of security, the nuns who serve the homeless, the choristers of the Sistine Chapel, the papal gardener, the chief of the diplomatic corps and many others, the film offers an inside look into the daily lives of those who live and work in the Vatican.
Although the church calendar unfolds much as it has for centuries, it is also a time of dramatic change as Pope Francis introduces reforms, shakes up the clerical establishment and deals with the fallout of a sex abuse scandal that erupts just as he embarks on a historic visit to Ireland.
