La fièvre (A Spell of Fever)

Thursday 24th September / 4PM @ The Maltings Theatre & Cinema

Morocco, 2011. On a feverish night, a child perceives a ghost, a woman who has come from the sea, coming home after a long political exile. Silent tales, disembodied voices and visions mingle in the dark of the night and the heat of fever. The child of the present and the political refugee are now one, travelling together to a mysterious building haunted by lost memories. History of decolonization and forgotten political fights appear and disappear. But a new struggle, Morocco’s Arab Spring, floods the past.


Presented as part of the Berwick New Cinema Midlengths Programme.
