Poster for the film BUTTERFLY VISION

Butterfly Vision

The scars of war are laid bare in this piercing drama from writer-director Maksym Nakonechnyi. Stylistically inventive and featuring a compelling lead performance from newcomer Rita Burkovska, Butterfly Vision is a timely testament to the trauma and resilience of women on the Ukrainian frontlines.

"Though she might have turned the dial up, Burkovska conveys Lilya’s depression and anxiety, and finally her resilience, with a muted, powerful performance."
Cath Clarke, The Guardian
"The film might aim to deliver an aesthetic and emotional jolt, but it is the mundane, interpersonal moments that linger."
Natalia Winkelman, The New York Times
