From Fernando Meirelles, the Academy Award-nominated director of City of God, and three-time Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Anthony McCarten, comes an intimate story of one of the most dramatic transitions of power in the last 2,000 years. Frustrated with the direction of the church, Cardinal Bergoglio (Jonathan Pryce) requests permission to retire in 2012 from Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins). Instead, facing scandal and self-doubt, the introspective Pope Benedict summons his harshest critic and future successor to Rome to reveal a secret that would shake the foundations of the Catholic Church. Behind Vatican walls, a struggle commences between both tradition and progress, guilt and forgiveness, as these two very different men confront elements from their pasts in order to find common ground and forge a future for a billion followers around the world. Produced by Dan Lin, Jonathan Eirich, and Tracey Seaward. *Inspired by true events
Bryce Dessner is a vital and rare force in new music. He has won Grammy Awards as a classical composer and with the band The National, of which he is founding member, guitarist, arranger and co-principal song-writer. He is commissioned to write for the world’s leading ensembles, from Orchestre de Paris to the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Meanwhile he is a high-profile presence in film score composition, with credits including Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant - for which he was Grammy and Golden Globe nominated. The breadth and level of Dessner’s creative output is remarkable.
Dessner collaborates with some of today’s most creative and respected artists, including Philip Glass, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Paul Simon, Sufjan Stevens, Johnny Greenwood, Bon Iver, Kelley O’Connor, Nico Muhly and Steve Reich, who named Dessner “a major voice of his generation.” His orchestrations can be heard on the new albums of Paul Simon and Bon Iver.
Bryce Dessner was named one of a collective of eight 'extraordinary artists, thinkers and doers' to help steer the artistic leadership of Esa-Pekka Salonen as San Francisco Symphony Orchestra’s new Music Director from September 2020.
Recent major works include Concerto for Two Pianos for Katia and Marielle Labèque, premiered by London Philharmonic Orchestra and recorded for Deutsche Grammophon; Voy a Dormir for Kelley O’Connor and St. Luke’s Orchestra; Skrik Trio for Steve Reich and Carnegie Hall; the ballet No Tomorrow co-written with Ragnar Kjartansson; and Wires for Ensemble Intercontemporain. In 2019, Gautier Capuçon premiered a new work by Dessner commissioned by Fondation Louis Vuitton, and Los Angeles Philharmonic premiered Triptych (Eyes for One on Another), a major theatre piece integrating the photographs of Robert Mapplethorpe. New York’s Metropolitan Museum featured a song by Dessner in one of its first contemporary installations. Further film score credits include The Kitchen for Warner Bros. (2019) as well as The Two Popes by Oscar-nominated director Fernando Meirelles (2019).
Dessner’s albums include St. Carolyn by the Sea on Deutsche Grammophon; Aheym commissioned by Kronos Quartet; Tenebre performed by Ensemble Resonanz (2019); plus When we are inhuman by Dessner, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Eighth Blackbird (2019).
Dessner is active as a curator and is regularly requested to programme festivals and residencies around the world, such as at Barbican, Philharmonie de Paris and Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie. He co-founded and curates the festivals MusicNOW in Cincinnati, HAVEN in Copenhagen, Sounds from a Safe Harbour and PEOPLE.
Dessner is principal songwriter for The National with his brother Aaron, in collaboration with singer/lyricist Matthew Berninger. In spring 2019 the band released its latest album, I am Easy to Find. Bryce Dessner lives in Paris.
