Winner of the FIPRESCI (International Critics) Prize and the Best Actor award at the Locarno International Film Festival last year, visual-artist-turned-filmmaker Maya Da-Rin’s debut fiction feature is both a quietly devastating indictment of Bolsonaro’s Brazil and a gentle, loving portrait of one indigenous Desana family torn between their livelihood in the port city of Manaus and their spiritual home in the rapidly disappearing rainforest. When port security guard Justino (non-pro Régis Myrupu) learns that his beloved daughter Vanessa (Rosa Peixoto) has been accepted to medical school in Brasilia, he develops an inexplicable fever. During the day, he fights to stay awake at work. During the night, a mysterious creature lurks in the nearby rainforest…

The Fever’s emotional beats never feel contrived. Instead, Da-Rin creates tension not as a simplistic pitting of the old against the new, so to speak, but as a constant generational negotiation and series of concessions motivated by familial love. The Fever is essential cinema, demanding empathy and understanding without pity or didacticism, and spotlighting indigenous people with the attention to cultural specifics that few films bother elaborating.’—Beatrice Loayza, Cinema Scope

 

Winnaar van de FIPRESCI (International Critics) Prize en Best Actor op het Locarno International Film Festival in 2019. Dit fictiedebuut van Maya Da-Rin is tegelijkertijd een stille, verwoestende aanklacht tegen het Brazilië van Bolsonaro en een liefdevol portret van een inheems Desano-gezin dat wordt verscheurd tussen hun levensonderhoud in de havenstad Manaus en hun spirituele thuis in het snel verdwijnende regenwoud. Wanneer havenbeveiliger Justino (de amateur Régis Myrupu) hoort dat zijn geliefde dochter Vanessa (Rosa Peixoto) is aangenomen op de medische faculteit in Brasilia krijgt hij op onverklaarbare wijze koorts. Overdag vecht hij op zijn werk tegen de slaap. ‘s Nachts ligt een mysterieus wezen vanuit het nabijgelegen regenwoud op de loer…

The Fever is essentiële cinema en vraagt om empathie en begrip zonder medelijden of de les te lezen. De film belicht de inheemse bevolking met oog voor culturele details waarvan weinig films de moeite nemen om ze uit te werken.’ —Beatrice Loayza, Cinema Scope
