KINO presents: Focus on Friedkin
To start 2020 properly we leave the Christmas cuddliness behind for a week of exploring one of our favourite directors: William “Hurricane Billy” Friedkin. The fearless director that cut his teeth in documentary features brought this visceral sense of reality to his fiction oeuvre, planting even the most fantastical themes firmly in reality and making the implausible tangible. Starting the 6th of January we screen two Friedkin features, To Live and Die in L.A. and The Exorcist: Director’s Cut and the documentary Friedkin Uncut.
The Exorcist: Director’s Cut (1973)
When a teenage girl is possessed by a mysterious entity, her mother seeks the help of two priests to save her daughter.
