Part of hit has to do with Latin America's history as the focal point of Catholic liberation theology, encompassing a more liberal wing of cardinals that focused on class issues. The Catholic Church repudiated the practice in the 1980s when preachers started criticizing the close relationship between the Church and state oligarchies. Pope Benedict XVI had been historically against it. Pope Francis wants to reconcile, even though he had opposed it in the past. My guess is that more conservative wings in the Vatican are still against reconciliation.

Children of Men is one of my favorite movies. I would classify it as post-collapse dystopia. So many new details appear every time I see it, and I like how Alfonso Cuaron centers his subjects around the world like a third-person game.
