New Documentary On Exorcism 'The Exorcist in the 21st Century'


A new documentary is being released this month filmed by a company in Norway. The film covers the Spanish exorcist Father José Antonio Fortea. Father Fortea has published at least one book as well as an interview film on the subject in recent years. The film looks like it is of quality production and will be interesting to see. I am not sure when it will be on DVD for purchase or where it will be shown in the US.

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.
