LIBERA NOS considers the return of exorcism in the contemporary world. Each year a growing number of people call their sense of unease “possession”. The Church answers to this spiritual emergency by nominating an increasing number of exorcist priests. Father Cataldo is one of the most sought-after exorcists in Sicily and has grown famous for his tireless fighting spirit. Every Tuesday, the congregation attends Father Cataldo’s mass for deliverance, trying to find a cure for a sense of discomfort that has no answer nor a name. This is the story of a meeting between the act of exorcism and everyday life, where the contrasts between the ancient and modern, the religious and profane, are as disturbing as they are disquieting.
