Salt + Light to Broadcast World Television Premiere
of its New Documentary The Francis Effect

TORONTO – March 19, 2014 – On Thursday April 17th Salt + Light Television will broadcast the world television premiere of it’s new documentary The Francis Effect.

From the moment Pope Francis appeared on the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica, he won the hearts of the people. With characteristic humility, simplicity and proximity to the poor, Francis has initiated a fundamental reform of the Roman Curia, challenged a “globalization of indifference,” and become the most talked about person in the world.

“This film is all about going deeper,” said producer Sebastian Gomes. “Going beneath the surface changes to try to understand the effect Francis is having, not just on the Catholic Church but on the entire world.”

The Francis Effect takes a critical and in-depth look at the emerging themes of Pope Francis' pontificate and how an ancient institution is rapidly changing under his leadership and vision.

Catch the world television premiere of The Francis Effect on Thursday April 17 at 9pm ET / 6pm PT, only on Salt + Light Television.
