Butterflies is a poetry film centered on the poem by the same title, written by Teri Elam. It stars Disnie Sebastien and was scored by Deniz Zeynep. It was commissioned by the 2020 Visible Poetry Project and is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video UK. It has been featured in CURA, a journal published by Fordham University, the Huntington Beach Cultural Cinema Showcase, and NPower Network, a Roku channel.
While production was supported in part by the Visible Poetry Project and a successful Facebook fundraiser (donors are acknowledged in the video credits), we are still seeking support for the film festival circuit. If you wish to support this endeavor, please contact me for more information.
