Leap of Faith: William Friedkin on The Exorcist

October 29

Having previously stepped into the shower for his exhaustive study of Psycho‘s most famous scene with 78/52 (2017), and boarded the Nostromo for the far reaches of space in Memory: The Origins of Alien (2019), acclaimed documentarian Alexandre O. Philippe returns to NorthwestFest with this special pre-Halloween screening!

This time, he turns his attention to another landmark of genre cinema – The Exorcist (1973). Framed around an epic six-day interview with director William Friedkin, his expertly assembled analysis is not just an in-depth musing on one of the most influential and widely acclaimed horror movies of all time, but also an enlightening and intimate portrait of one man’s creative process.

USA 2020, 104 min, Dir: Alexandre O. Philippe
