TRAILER

A short film directed under the mentorship of director Werner Herzog

In May 2018, famous director Werner Herzog invited some young filmmakers to make short films in the heart of the Amazonian jungle, Peru. This film was made during this workshop. Werner gave the creative theme : “Fever Dreams in the Jungle”.

The story of Carlito

In the heart of the Amazonian jungle, the village of Palma Real on the banks of the river "Mother of God" still resists the modern world. Nomads of origin and evangelized by force, their pagan customs persist despite everything and the inhabitants are marked with the physique of the native tribes.

Carlito, a silent young man, decides to leave this place, his native village, in a strange, discreet and informal escape. Without saying goodbye to his family, if not his grandmother just as silent as him, he commits the flight of a canoe to escape on the river. A little further on, on the muddy bed of the immense river, an encounter reveals the secret that Carlito has hidden from his community.

A film whose images are revealed as a poem.

A film made in 1 day with the complicity of the inhabitants

The community of Palma Real is an indigenous community. They speak their own language called “Ese Eja”, which means “the real people”. This remote village is only accessible after several hours by boat from the Peruvian city of Puerto Maldonado, on the river “Madre de Dios”. Playing in the film are real inhabitants of the village, all non professional actors, speaking in their own tongue.

Due to the far location and the limited timing of the Werner Herzog’s workshop, the film was shot in one day, after Quentin has visited the village a few times. A few days later, after many days of editing alongside fellow filmmakers, he was able to show the village a first cut of the film.

Addressing LGBT issues in the jungle

Carlito’s “fever dream” was to leave is home village because he fell in love with another man. Living open gay relationship can be tricky in remote places of the jungle, but especially in bigger cities like Puerto Maldonado. Things are getting better and better in Peru and we can only hope that these kind of stories can make people become more tolerant.
