Shaped by the terrors of Nazi-occupied Poland and the subsequent brutalities of the Communist regime, John Paul II became one of the world's greatest proponents of religious freedom and human rights. With rare historical stills and archival footage, along with new location footage taken in Rome and Poland, this richly textured film traces the personal life and struggles of the first non-Italian pope in over 450 years. Based on George Weigel's book of the same title, Witness to Hope is a complete and intimate portrait of an extraordinary leader. Widescreen. Region 1. Approx. 115 minutes.
