Director Fredrik Horn Akselsen reveals the secret and mystical world of Catholic exorcisms in his documentary THE EXORCIST IN THE 21st CENTURY.
The Church granted filmmakers Fredrik Horn Akselsen and Christian Falch a remarkable degree of access to tell this story, allowing them to accompany one of the few exorcists in Europe, the Vatican-approved Father José Antonio Fortea, Catholic priest / Exorcist and author. Father Fortea travels the world on his mission to enlighten the masses about demonic possession and to help fellow exorcists. Father Gabriel Amorth, Official Vatican Exorcist, is also prominently featured in the documentary. He has been an exorcist for 25 years and estimates he has seen 70,000 cases.
In the film, Constanza, a Colombian woman, claims to have been possessed by demons for 15 years and sees the Spanish exorcist as her last hope for spiritual liberation.
