BUTTERFLIES

2005 / 35mm / 12 mins

PRODUCTION Samsa Film

WRITER/DIRECTOR Max Jacoby

A man gets interrogated by the police about the drowning of a girl that he claims he witnessed

The film is based on a short story by Ian McEwan, who most people know as the writer of Atonement. I must confess I am not the biggest fan of his writing, but a friend dragged me into the bookstore and made me promise to read his collection of short stories. I’m glad I did!
