Fiction / 22 min
La fièvre is a short fiction film about two young skateboarders, Aleister and Joana, who will try to declare their love for each other throughout the night. This declaration is put to the test by the different obstacles they meet on their way, leading them to wander the streets of Lausanne until the early morning.
For this project, I wanted to work with non-professional actors in order to anchor the fiction in contemporary reality, to film young people in their daily lives as teenagers, without distorting them. The idea was not to fantasise about a geographical or temporal elsewhere, but to anchor the characters’ journey in the here and now.
