Carlos Ormeño Palma - Director - Peruvian independent films


La Fiebre is an award-winning independent film company set in Peru created by Carlos Ormeño Palma with the aim of producing films that, like fever in humans, respond to a growing problem on a personal and social level.

The main project of the company is the production of The scent of Walls, a film set between 2024 and 1994. This film tells the story of Ivan, a 30-year-old photojournalist who finds his father after fifteen years of absence. While Iván embarks himself in the search of his abandonment, he discovers a secret his mother kept until her death.

La Fiebre Films has produced three short films. 
Understand in 2016, Backwards in 2017 and The distance of Time in 2021. Understand and Backwards have been selected in more than fifteen film festivals around the world. In 2018, "Understand" won the award for best editing in the FUSE Film Festival in Croatia. "The distance of Time" will have its World Premiere at the 29° Raindance Film Festival.

In 2020, the company won the peruvian national fund for short film production for The weight of Air, a story about child pregnancy and violence against women in Peru.
