Years after he changed the landscape of American filmmaking with THE
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.
