The Flowers of St. Francis

The Flowers of St. Francis

Directed by Roberto Rossellini • 1950 • Italy

In a series of simple and joyous vignettes, director Roberto Rossellini and co-writer Federico Fellini lovingly convey the universal teachings of the People's Saint: humility, compassion, faith, and sacrifice. Gorgeously photographed to evoke the medieval paintings of Saint Francis's time, and cast with monks from the Nocera Inferiore Monastery, THE FLOWERS OF ST. FRANCIS is a timeless and moving portrait of the search for spiritual enlightenment.
