Fernando Meirelles is the film director of the newly released film “The Two Popes.” Fernando shares with us what some of his inspirations were for directing The Two Popes,” a fictionalized account about an early encounter between Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis, and why he feels this account between these two men is particularly important for today’s very polarized society.
