Belief explores the death of Wainuiomata mother Janet Moses during an attempted exorcism in 2007. Using interviews and reenactments, it explores 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 at the 2015 NZ International Film Festival, then played on TV One. NZ Herald critic Peter Calder found it "compelling and heartbreaking". Stubbs was named Best Documentary Director at the 2017 Moa Awards. Kura Forrester (The Educators) plays Janet.
[Writer/director David] Stubbs relied on the public record, interviews with others — in particular prosecution and defence counsel — and reenactment by a nimble and assured cast to dig behind the sensational headlines of the trial coverage.– Peter Calder in The NZ Herald, 16 July 2015, page C9
