[Fantasia ’21] ‘Giving Birth to a Butterfly’ releases clip ahead of world premiere

Check out the clip here!

Giving Birth to a Butterfly is a surreal road drama making its world premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival. After having her identity stolen online, Diana Dent leaves her family and goes on a road trip with her son’s pregnant girlfriend to track down the perpetrators. The mismatched travel companions form an unexpected bond as they concede to the hardships of their own lives, and their hunt for answers becomes a surreal journey of self-discovery and empowerment.

The film stars Annie Parisse (Friends From College) and Gus Birney (I’M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS, Dickinson), Constance Shulman (Orange Is the New Black, STRAWBERRY MANSION), and Paul Sparks (House of Cards, Boardwalk Empire).

Shot on pastel-tone 16mm and intimately framed, Theodore Schaefer’s debut feature offers a unique mix of American surrealism, ironic absurdist comedy, plus the staples of a road trip movie. Giving Birth to a Butterfly follows a trope, but adds shocking surprises.

The Fantasia Film Festival takes place in person and online from August 5 – August 25
