August 4th, 2011 – August 14th, 2011


A girl in a foreign country wakes with a fever. Everything is not as it would seem – sometimes it can be wilder and worse and more beautiful than you can imagine. She will get on a plane, arrive in her destination, be bitten by a malaria ridden bug, and undergo a terrible fever before she recovers. We view the story through her fevered lens into a darkly whimsical land of robotic stewardesses, assertive angels of mercy and an unstoppable greek chorus of infected mosquitos. (
