Fevers/ Fievres, winner of FESPACO – Africa’s largest film festival – 2015 grand prize, the Golden Stallion of Yennenga, is a French version of We Need to Talk About Kevin about a disturbed young man raised on foster care who enters his father’s Muslim household in the suburbs of Paris and becomes a major source of disruption in the family.

At only thirteen, Benjamin is a little soldierat war with life, adults and himself. Since the age of five, the troubled kid has gone in and out of foster homes. But when his mother goes to jail and reveals to Benjamin the existence of his father, the young boy is determined to get out of foster care. Provided a way out, Benjamin enters his father’s Muslim household in the suburbs of Paris and disruption ensues.
