The Devil and Father Amorth

Years after he changed the landscape of American filmmaking with THE EXORCIST, director William Friedkin moves from fiction to fact with his new documentary on an actual exorcism ceremony performed by Father Amorth. It would be the ninth exorcism for Cristina (a pseudonym), who had already been under Father Amorth's care - and it would be filmed by Friedkin alone, with no other crew allowed, no light other than the natural light in the room and a small digital camera-and-mic unit that could capture the ritual and its revelations. Combining the startling and singular footage from Cristina's exorcism with interviews from priests, psychologists, neurosurgeons and non-believers; Friedkin guides us on a journey into the twilight world between the boundaries of what we know, and what we fear.
