The Fever and the Fret (with short film The 5th Stage)
A shy, artistic loner growing up in the Bronx, 14-year-old Eleanor is tormented at school because of the large birthmarks on her face. At night, she begins visiting another world, vast and desolate, where she encounters another being who is like her. But when Eleanor is forced into a confrontation at school, she faces a series of unexpected consequences, and may have to leave her other world behind forever. Director Cath Gulick spins together a dark, compelling fairy tale of a girls escape from a troubled reality that hits all the right notes as it leads us through Eleanors worlds.
Preceded by the short film "The 5th Stage" - A schizophrenic college freshman must fight the voices in his head and take the jump into adulthood to help a troubled girl at his first college party.
