The Laudato Si' Movement said: "Truly, it is a historical moment for us. It’s our movement’s largest initiative so far, and Pope Francis is the film’s star!

"Besides the Pope, who has generously spent time with us during the production, sharing his deep wisdom, other voices are also featured, representing the peripheries of the ecological crisis.

"Ridhima, a teenage youth activist from India; Cacique Dada, an indigenous leader from the Amazon; Arouna, a climate refugee from Senegal; and Robin and Greg, a couple of scientists from Hawaii. "Their stories are prophetic and moving. And they had the opportunity to tell the Pope in first person the difficulties they are going through and how the climate crisis affects them closely."
