The investigation film is written and directed by Danielle Luchetti who wished to uncover the truth about a man of faith, and a man who believes. “I tried to tell his story by “walking” by his side,” Luchetti explains. “I tried to put all the clues together, to analyze his gestures during the sermons and interviews before his election. Above all I tried to be faithful to the truth of his story and to the laws of storytelling”
