Synopsis

Amanda, a complaisant and lonely woman in her mid-fourties, lives with Daniel, her sixteen-year-old son, in the mountains of southern Chile. Octavio, a friend of Daniel, is accidentally injured while hunting in the forest. Amanda takes over the healing sessions, developing an intimate bond between them. They discover that the contact with the wound produces an addictive pleasure.

Director’s Statement

Fiebre Austral is an atmospheric pursuit with which I try to understand what happens in that magical gap that exists between pleasure and pain. It is a film that wonders about the body, about the personal perception of its sensitivity limits. It was inspired by my aunt Carmen’s pictorial work, which is violent, seductive, static, sexual, outrageous. For me, Fiebre Austral gathers all of that.
