Ruuqya translates from Arabic as “exorcism” and depicts the fight of a mystic with the uncanny forces of evil. Finding shelter in an ancient ruin after a severe plague that ravaged his monastery, a monk is terrorized by a djjin( spirit or demon ) who wants to take possession of his body. What follows is a three day battle without food, sleep or water for the freedom of his own soul. Told in a non sequential manner, the film borrows heavily from experimental and horror cinema to portray madness like never seen before on screen. [Canada]
