Pedro Arrupe: His Life and Legacy Documentary

Georgetown University commissioned the film to honor Arrupe, who often is called the Jesuit’s “second founder” — after the order’s original founder St. Ignatius of Loyola — because of his wide reforms to the Jesuit order. The documentary includes interviews with Arrupe, footage of his life and work, and interviews with Jesuits who were closest to him.
