Watch The Gripping Trailer For David Stubbs' True Life Exorcism Doc BELIEF: THE POSSESSION OF JANET MOSES
Sure to provoke strong reactions as it hits the festival circuit, a gripping and troubling trailer has arrived online for David Stubbs' documentary Belief: The Possession Of Janet Moses which peers into the circumstances around the death of a young Maori woman in 2007 and appears to do so in remarkable fashion.

A documentary feature film that lifts the veil of secrecy on what became known as "The Wainuiomata exorcism", to reveal the extra-ordinary true story of how both love and fear could drive a New Zealand family to unwittingly kill one of their own.

Intertwining key interviews and dramatic narrative the film lures the viewer into the twisted reality of the last few days of Janet Moses' life. Believing that 22-year-old had fallen under the spell of a Makutu, or Maori curse, her whanau surround her in a circle of love, and subject the young mother to four days and nights of water cleansing in an effort to rid her of evil. So great was their belief in Makutu, that it became their truth.  Belief is a highly confronting take on a modern love tragedy.  It sheds light on the dark nightmare Janet and her whanau shared within the close confines of her grandfather's bedsit in Wainuiomata in the spring of 2007.

Blending artful recreations with interview footage the trailer alone already shows more sensitivity to the host of cultural and emotional issues at play in a case like this than most ever manage and I am very deeply curious to see more. Take a look below.
