Netflix released the official trailer for Fever Dream (Distancia de rescate), the disturbing chilling drama film directed by award-winning Peruvian filmmaker Claudia Llosa, from a screenplay co-written with renowned Argentine author Samanta Schweblin based on her novel of the same name.
The charged relationship between two young moms, one a visitor and the other a local, reveals a looming environmental catastrophe and a spiritual crash in the film opening in select theaters on October 6 and on Netflix on October 13, 2021.
An Official Selection of the 69th San Sebastian International Film Festival, Fever Dream stars Maria Valverde, Dolores Fonzi, German Palacios, Guillermo Pfening and Emilio Vodanovich.
Told from a decidedly feminine perspective, this hallucinatory tale explores the interconnected nature of love and fear in motherhood. A woman named Amanda vacations in a sleepy Argentine village with her young daughter Nina. Ever-concerned with her daughter’s welfare, Amanda constantly calculates the “rescue distance” needed to protect her child. She soon discovers that things around her are not as they seem. A local boy named David interrogates Amanda, as she struggles to make sense of her surroundings. The beauty of the bucolic countryside is a striking counterpoint to an eerie story of dark forces, powerful emotions, and pervasive dangers.
