Pope Francis has always been a champion of intergenerational dialogue and in 2018 commissioned a book which shares the insights of older people from around the globe with young people today. The award-winning Sharing the Wisdom of Time pools the wisdom of elders with the passion and energy of youth, empowering our younger generations to step into the world of tomorrow with wisdom and understanding.

Now Netflix has produced a new four-part documentary, Stories of a Generation, inspired by this beautifully-produced, heart-warming and wise book. It is set for Netflix global release on Christmas Day 2021.
