Distancia de rescate

Peru’s Claudia Llosa teams with Netflix for her fourth feature, Fever Dream, produced by Mark Johnson and Tom Williams in conjunction with Pablo Larrain’s Fabula Productions. Shot in Chile by Oscar Faura (who has lensed all of J.A. Bayona’s titles to date), Llosa employs Maria Valverde, Dolores Fonzi, Guillermo Pfening in the cast. Llosa became immediately of note in 2006 with her debut Madeinusa, which competed in Sundance’s World Dramatic competition. She won the Golden Bear in Berlin for her sophomore film The Milk of Sorrows in 2009, and then won the Teddy for Best Short in 2012 for Loxoro. Llosa’s underrated English language debut Aloft also competed in Berlin in 2014.
