The time has come – filming of ‘Fever’ has begun!

Elfi Mikesh’ new feature film, a visually powerful drama, fluctuating between dreams and reality, the past and the present, is being shot in Luxembourg, Austria, Sout Tyrol and Serbia. Eva Mattes, Martin Wuttke, Carolina Cardoso, Nicole Max and Sascha Ley are the core of the very talented cast.

‘Fever’ is a co-production between AMOUR FOU Luxembourg and AMOUR FOU Vienna and will be completed in 2014.

Austria, 1950s. Franzi, eleven years old, lives in a small town with her parents. Photographs belong to her life like picture books to those of other kids. She spends days and nights between dream and reality, ‘bringing to life’ the photos her dad took in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia while being stationed there as a foreign legionaire. The images are enigmatic and spark her imagination, fascination and horror never lie far apart. The father’s feverish dreams, triggered by a recurrent surge of malaria, become the girl’s nightmare. Years later, the successful and now grown-up Franziska travels from Graz to Novi Sad, searching for a lost sister and the images of her childhood start blurring with her journey to Serbia. In “Fever”, two narrative threads conjoin suspensefully: fiction and photo-film and the film oscillates between dream and reality.
