Reconstructing a series of unearthed home movies, Dustin Guy Defa dubs his own voice over the voices of his family members to create a personal portrait of dysfunction. The result is a slice of early-1990s America, a dizzy trip through the destructive patterns that have trapped and destroyed a family.
Dustin Guy Defa's feature Bad Fever premiered at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival. The film opened in early 2012 to glowing reviews by L.A. Weekly, Village Voice and New York Magazine, and The New Yorker named it one of the best films of the year. L Magazine named Defa the Best Filmmaker to Watch in Brooklyn.
