The Papal Chase is a Canadian feature-length guerrilla documentary created by and starring Kenny Hotz, of Kenny vs. Spenny fame.


The premise of this award winning documentary is that the Pope (Pope John Paul II) is visiting Canada, and Kenny Hotz's friend has bet him $1000 that Kenny can't meet him. The movie takes place over the course of six days in which Kenny attempts several times to meet the pope in order to win the bet. In his attempt to meet the man, Kenny does several things, including becoming a "Pope-arazzi", fighting his way through millions of pilgrims and onlookers, thousands of cops, security guards, Vatican Special Forces, precision snipers, the media and 2 million faithful. Over the 6-day period, Kenny becomes slightly catholicised, and searches not only for the Pope, but an understanding of God, and the way other people view God, religion, and spirituality in general.
