THE LETTER, A film about caring for our common home


“The Letter – A Message for our Earth”  is a powerful movie which tells the story of four people from very different backgrounds and the roles they are playing to care more deeply for our common home.

The movie is stunningly made by award winning director Nicholas Brown. The movie tries to bring the essence of Laudato Si’ into a dialogue with Pope Francis and voices from around the world. The real story is about the movement of hearts that is needed to address the damage caused by the human abuse of God’s creation. It is a rallying call for the whole earth. Pope Francis wrote Laudato Si’ for everyone living on this planet and this is reflected in The Letter as the four voices represent the communities of the indigenous, science, youth and the voice of the poor.
