The Shadow of the Butterflies

Sofia El Khyari  |  Cinema  |  2019  |  Morocco
Producer: Yves Bouveret and Olivier Catherin
In a mysterious forest, a melancholic woman is slowly lured into a daydream as she observes butterflies (symbol of memory and hope in the film), reminding her of memories of a lost love. She experiences a mixed feeling of melancholy, nostalgia, desire and hope, and lives a moment of tension as she oscillates between the observation of the butterflies and the desire to get closer to them.
