Malaria has killed more people than all other diseases and wars on Earth combined. In Subsaharan Africa, one child still dies every 60 seconds. Nobody, including Big Pharma, the Gates Foundation, or the WHO, seems to believe that Africans have their own solutions. Director Katharina Weingartner takes us to an area that she calls the “ground zero” of malaria: the countries around the Lake Victoria basin in East Africa. In Uganda and Kenya, she found people who have taken action against malaria using local strategies. The Fever portrays the fight against malaria in East Africa as a case study in greed and courage.
