THE FEVER portrays the fight against malaria in East Africa as a case study in greed, courage and self-determination.
Covid-19 has put the world on hold. But with Malaria, which has killed more people than all other diseases and wars on Earth combined, it ́s business as usual, or even worse: Deaths are expected to double due to the lockdown in African countries. Black Lives Don’t Matter?
What if there was an herb that could defeat the deadly malaria parasite and save a thousand lives per day, every day? Big pharma corporations fear for their profits. Donors like the Gates Foundation capitalize on high tech science. They prefer the old colonial ways, exploiting a continent already ravaged by poverty and death.
In THE FEVER three East Africans reject this dispossession. They counter the spectacle of Black suffering, which Western documentaries often perpetuate, and show how local solutions could save millions of lives – from malaria and possibly other pandemic diseases as well.
