EXORCISM | BBC 3

Journalist Andrew Gold visits an internationally renowned exorcist in Buenos Aires, who claims to cure the sick of their demons and battle against evil.

As well as running the world’s first ‘school for exorcists’, Padre Manuel Acuña often appears alongside models and celebrities on Argentinian TV and radio. He has fostered a huge following in the poor suburbs of Buenos Aires, where he uses controversial techniques in an apparent attempt to heal the sick, with seemingly great success.

With bizarre interactions, violent exorcisms and one particularly tense argument, this presenter-led documentary sets to uncover the murky truth about modern exorcisms.
