Unlike Masks and The Rest I Make Up, Ventura Pons’ Virus of Fear (2015) is not a documentary. It is, however, decidedly theatrical: based on the acclaimed play by Josep Maria Miró, Arquimedes’ Principle, the film follows a community grappling with the aftermath of an alleged sexual assault at a local swimming pool. Unwilling to take sides or to pontificate, Pons offers instead a challenging, bold examination of the contagious nature of terror and collective anxiety.
