Requiem

A FILM BY Hans Christian Schmid

As haunting as a horror film and far more heartrending.
-Gene Seymour, NEWSDAY
A stunningly played story of faith vs. family.

Sandra Huller?s intensity is so compelling you truly have no idea if those demons are real.

Synopsis

Michaela leaves home, and a deeply religious family, to study at university. Embracing her first taste of freedom, she enjoys a budding romantic relationship and a new friendship until her epilepsy relapses and brings with it a frightening onrush of grotesque faces and voices. Michaela seeks help from a priest, who reinforces her conviction that she is possessed. Soon even her friends can’t break through the religious and moral ties that bind her to her fate. Based on a true story.
