Under the Roman Sky

A new film about Pius XII:
LuxVide examined Pius II’s beatification documents and his relationship with Nazism, taking part in the heated debates that shed new light on Pope Pacelli’s pontificate, gathering evidence on the plan to kidnap the Pope during the German occupation of Rome. Everything comes together with great intensity in this dramatic story that retraces history with passages of untold truths. Even among the Nazi officers, there were those who opposed such savagery and, thus, under the Roman sky, both the saved and the lost, the victims and the executioners, shout the Pope’s cry with their lives: Nothing is lost with peace. Everything may be lost by war.
