TRAILER & SYNOPSIS

.

The Exorcist in the 21st Century takes the viewer into the unknown and sinister world of exorcism in the Catholic Church. We meet one of the few exorcists in Europe, the Vatican approved José Antonio Fortea. He travels around the world on a mission to enlighten the masses about demonic possession. Constanza, a Colombian woman, is desperately looking for Fr. Forteas help. She claims to have been possessed by demons for nearly 15 years and she goes through a ritual of exorcism before she sees the Spanish exorcist as a last hope for spiritual liberation. The film follows both their journeys and gives a unique insight into one of the world most secret and mystical rites – the catholic ritual of exorcism. “The Exorcist in the 21st Century” was pitched at Dokumentarfilmfestivalen in Volda, DocPoint in Helsinki, MipDoc in Cannes, Latin Side of the Doc in Buenos Aires and have been a part of EDNs workshop”Twelve for the future”.
