One of his favorite parts of the film includes footage in Kenya, where the Missionaries of Charity care for children with deformities and severe developmental disabilities.

The scene includes a Missionary of Charity sister feeding a baby with hydrocephalus, a condition in which fluid builds up in the brain.

“Seeing these children…and just the love and care for this child was just something that moved me deeply,” he said.

“I think what sets this movie apart is the fact that it comes 25 years after his death, Naglieri said. “So it’s the first film that had the chance to completely soak up her life, her legacy, and also deal with some of the information and revelations of Mother Teresa that came later.”

Some of this information includes a window into the saint’s spiritual life, including times when she experienced desolation during her service to the poor. The film also covers his friendship with Saint John Paul II.

Saint Teresa of Calcutta was born on August 26, 1910 in Skopje, in present-day North Macedonia. She joined the Sisters of Loreto at age 17 and founded the Missionaries of Charity in 1950 in Kolkata, India. Today, the headquarters of the community is still in Kolkata, with houses around the world.

The saint was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for her service to the poor. She died on September 5, 1997 and was canonized by Pope Francis on September 4, 2016.
