This summer IPL is partnering with the Laudato Si’ movement to bring the documentary film, “The Letter”, to your attention for your summer film screenings. This gorgeously filmed story featuring scenes from around the world puts a human face on climate change. Consider hosting a free screening for your congregation.

The Letter tells the incredible story of the Laudato Si’ encyclical letter by Pope Francis, through the eyes of frontline leaders battling the ecological crisis across continents. A powerful – and surprising – dialogue with the Pope in the Vatican brings new hope for our common home.

Featured in the film are Arouna Kandé, a climate refugee in Senegal; Cacique Dadá, an environmental defender and leader of the Maró Indigenous territory in the Brazilian Amazon; Ridhima Pandey, a youth climate activist from India; and Greg Asner and Robin Martin, biologists studying coral reefs in Hawaii.

The film features exclusive footage from their encounter with Francis, alongside the personal stories and scientific findings throughout the documentary.

Behind the lens capturing their stories was Nicolas Brown, an award-winning filmmaker who has made more than a dozen documentaries on climate change and the environment, including “The Serengeti Rules,” National Geographic’s “Pandas: The Journey Home” and “Climate Chaos” with famed naturalist Sir David Attenborough.

Preview it yourself at home, then register to host a screening for your congregation for free.

You must register for permission to host a community screening for your congregation. 

It’s ok to show over Zoom, but not Facebook or Youtube. It’s ok to share in an educational setting, community centers, small theaters, and libraries as long as you don’t charge admission.
