Fermat's Room

DIRECTOR: Luis Piedrahita, Rodrigo Sopeña - Spain

Invitations have been sent to four notable Spanish mathematicians to attend a mysterious weekend excursion to a remote location (rowboat-across-the-lake remote).  Code names of famous mathematicians from history are assigned to protect their identities--or for some other sinister purpose?  The host is named Fermat, and the weekend's goal is to solve one of the world's greatest enigmas.  After an elegant dinner, though, the real challenge is presented: the foursome must solve incoming logic puzzles and submit the answers through a handheld PDA, or else… let's just say that not knowing your math might be dangerous to your health.  With their lives on the line, these four brains must solve their most profound equation yet: Why is someone trying to kill them?  Winner of the Audience Award at the Málaga International Week of Fantastic Cinema.
