The Vatican : The State of the Church

A captivating investigation into the pinnacle of Catholicism, and how incessant scandals and an ever changing society have rocked its foundations and weakened its power.

4 years of investigation, 45+ interviewees, 10+ nationalities and exclusive access to the highest echelons of the Holy See.

Poetically and subtly personal, The Vatican tells the sotires of people who have loyally served the Roman Catholic church their whole lives. From high-ranking cardinals heading major departments in Vatican City to local servants of God. From powerful untouchables to outcasts of the organization.
