Dealing with Exorcism

Trailer – A rare glimpse into the life of a village community on Ambon, one of the Moluccan islands. Pastor Ina and her husband, Pastor Eddy, are leading a Pentecostal church community in the village of Suli. Almost every day they are confronted with cases of ancestral spirit possession. One person they try to help is Yanti, who is possessed by evil spirits. Exorcism is embedded in the traditional customary law or adat, which is connected to an unseen world of ancestors. What is the Pentecostal approach?
