Nothing Is As It Seems

By: Mariano Iacobellis, SJ

French playwright Florian Zeller’s directorial debut, The Father, is an elegant and emotionally devastating chamber film which is essential viewing. Based on the play of the same name, The Father places at the center of its plot a man determined to refuse all assistance from his daughter as he ages.

By: Camillo Ripamonti, SJ

After the Pastoral Guidelines for Refugees (2013) and those for Internally Displaced Persons (2020), it is the turn of a new document, a tool for awareness and action, Pastoral Orientations on Climate Displaced People.[1] As Pope Francis recalled on the occasion of Earth Day, April 22, 2021, “the things that we have been saying to one another must not fall into oblivion.

‘Fratelli Tutti’ and ‘Ubuntu’ on Cosmological Friendship

By: Elias Opongo, SJ

Pope Francis’ encyclical Fratelli Tutti has a number of parallels with the African ethic of Ubuntu. Published in October 2020, the encyclical has drawn attention to the social consciousness on solidarity between different members of society based on social-interdependence. The African concept of Ubuntu largely refers to inter-connectedness within humanity and between its members, and asserts that “my humanity finds its fundamental definition through your humanity.” This definition of Ubuntu is founded on three fundamental values. First, that humanity is...

‘The Burghers of Calais’

By: Claudio Zonta SJ

Los burgueses de Calais, la última frontera, by Spanish director Jesús Armesto – winner of the SAMIFO prize at the 11th Mental Health Film Festival “Lo Spiraglio” – is an intense and poetic documentary about the condition of migrants stuck in transit at the mouth of the Eurotunnel. These people are confined, as if in limbo, in the so-called “jungle,” near Calais, in Northern France. The title refers to the sculpture by the famous artist Auguste Rodin, in homage to...
