In the presence of: Alexandre O. Philippe, Jonas Govaerts

The importance of William Friedkin on the horror genre is emphasized by the fact that our programme offers not one, but two films on the director and his oeuvre. Alexandre O. Philippe's documentary zooms in on Friedkin's 'The Exorcist', the first horror film to contend for the Best Film Oscar Nomination. 'Leap of Faith gets its material from a six-day interview with Friedkin. No stone is left unturned in this film, a bright light is shone on 'The Exorcist'.
