On the birthday of the pope emeritus, the Vatican Filmoteca welcomed the presentation of a Rome Reports documentary, Benedict XVI, in honor of truth.
The event was attended by one of Benedict’s closest associates, his secretary, Msgr. Georg GÃ¤nswein.
I was impressed with the documentary. I was able to relive all of the moments I’ve experienced, and I think it’s a beautiful testament.
The 48-minute documentary tells the story of Benedict’s life and, above all, investigates the reasons for his resignation through interviews with experts and first-hand witnesses.

Father Lombardi, who was the Vatican spokesman for so many years, and others who were Benedict’s collaborators helped us to understand five years later what caused this historic stepping down.
The documentary was produced by Rome Reports in collaboration with TV2000 as well as the Ratzinger Foundation, and sponsored by the RamÃ³n Tallaj UreÃ±a Foundation.

I think it gives a very truthful image of Ratzinger after so many schemes, stereotypes and so much shouting in favor or against Pope Benedict.

That’s why we chose to collaborate in the production, and we hope this reaches the entire world.
The film is available in Italian, Spanish and English. To date, Rome Reports has produced more than 20 documentaries on the Vatican and the Catholic Church.
