A Febre

Maya Da-Rin, Brazil, France, Germany, 2019o

vBack

Justino, a 45-year-old member of the indigenous Desana people, is a security guard at the Manaus harbor. As his daughter prepares to study medicine in Brasilia, Justino comes down with a mysterious fever.

Maya Da-Rin’s stunning feature debut is a portrait of Justino, an indigenous man torn between Manaus, the port city where he works as a security guard, and the call of the Amazon village where he was born. Like Justino himself, The Fever is neither loud nor ostentatious, but it achieves a hypnotic quality by entering the rhythms and patterns of Justino’s life and inviting us to slip into his dreams. The result is a powerful experience in empathy.
