After his sublime dissection of the shower scene in Psycho (78/52, screened at FIFF 2017), Alexandre Philippe takes on another enthralling and absorbing subject, which allows him to indulge his love of popular cinema to the full. Leap of Faith analyses The Exorcist, the scenes shot in Iraq, its reference to Citizen Kane and Caravaggio, as well as its fundamental reflection on religious faith.
Special evening at Cinémathèque on 7th October 2020
Preview screening of Leap of Faith: William Friedkin on The Exorcist by Alexandre O. Philippe (2019) in attendance of the director followed by The Exorcist by William Friedkin (1973)
