La fièvre

Safia Benhaim

The history of decolonisation and political turmoil provides the background to a hallucinatory tour of today's Morocco where a new wave of resistance is emerging.

One feverish night a girl meets the spirit of a woman returning from lengthy political exile. Together they travel across Morocco, searching for a home that disappeared and a forgotten childhood. Lost memories and the history of decolonisation and political conflict re-emerge in cinematic hallucinations, but then the past is overrun by a new wave of resistance, Morocco's Arab Spring.
