The White Helicopter (Baltais helikopters), dir. Alvis Hermanis, Latvia, 2022

In February, 2013, the world experienced a shock - Catholic Pope Benedict XVI resigned, making him the first Pope to do so in 600 years. Reasons for his resignation are still unknown and secretive. In light of moral and ethical upheavals within the Catholic Church, and the unique challenges of the 21st century, Ratzinger's cited reason for declining health raises more questions than it gives answers.
"The White Helicopter", a film starring Mikhail Baryshnikov presents a new interpretation of the final day before Pope Benedict's historic resignation.
