“The Letter: A Message for our Earth” will be broadcast on PBS on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at 7 or 8 p.m., depending on your PBS station. (Check local listings for time.)
The 80-minute documentary is inspired by Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical letter “Laudato Si’,” which explores Catholic teaching on creation in light of today’s ecological crisis. The film features an exclusive dialogue between Pope Francis and five people from around the world, all of whom have experienced the ecological crisis and are working to solve it.
The film was produced by Oscar-winning producers Off the Fence and the Catholic nonprofit Laudato Si’ Movement in collaboration with the Vatican’s Dicastery for Communication and Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development. It is also available to watch prior to the broadcast on YouTube Originals: https://bit.ly/3V5pcVe.
