Document Film Festival Butterflies

Sat 21 October 2017


Young Alexei is openly homosexual. Although his peers have no problem with his sexual orientation, his mother is unable to accept it. This documentary portrait follows Alexei during summer break, as he spends time with his new lover Grisha. The film takes an unusual observational approach in that the camera is often right up against people’s bodies and faces during impassioned discussions, arguments, or testimony. Provocative, confrontational and unapologetic.

Presented in collaboration with SQIFF, Scottish Queer International Film Festival.
