The Fever

An Englishwoman wakes up in the middle of the night in a small hotel in a poverty-stricken foreign city where a civil war is being fought. She has a fever and tries to remember why she has returned to this frightening country. During the night, she retraces her happy childhood and her relatively happy adult existence as a pleasant, hardworking professional woman who has enjoyed her own life and loved music, the arts, her family and her friends. She also retraces the unusual events that have led her to this place, and how the people she has met have changed her understanding of the world. Now she confronts a new and unpleasant perception of herself and her life. As dawn breaks, her fever subsides. The woman has arrived at an honest appraisal of who she is, finally understanding her own responsibility for the violence of poverty and exploitation.
Graduate from the Centro Sperimentale Film Institute in Rome, Italy, and holder of a diploma with honours from New York University Film School, Carlo Nero has written and directed a number of award-winning short films and documentaries including Roma intorno a Roma, A Kid from Bensonhurst, Larry?s Visit and Letter from New York to Sarajevo, a film of the concert for UNICEF produced by Eileen Atkins and Vanessa Redgrave in New York. In 1999 he directed his first feature film, Uninvited, screened in the Zabaltegi section of the San Sebastian Festival. The Fever is his second feature film.
