Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses

Television (Trailer) – 2015

M
Mature

Belief examines the 2007 death of young Wainuiomata mother Janet Moses during an attempted exorcism. It uses a blend of interviews and reenactments to explore a tragedy which director David Stubbs believes was caused by "fear and love mixing and turning into hysteria". In 2009 five members of Janet’s family were charged in relation to her death. Belief debuted in the 2015 NZ International Film Festival before screening on TV One. Herald critic Peter Calder called it "compelling and heartbreaking". David Stubbs was judged Best Documentary Director at the 2017 Moa Awards. 

This is a cautionary tale that I hope starts conversations around where spirituality sits in our community, and why many beliefs are still held secret.
– David Stubbs
