Siblings Cemal, Kenan, and Suzi have grown apart since leaving Hasanlar, the tiny village where they grew up, and going their separate ways. When their estranged father demands that they return home immediately, Cemal, the eldest, is tasked with convincing his brother and sister to journey back to places they have been striving to forget. As they try to reunite their dysfunctional family and confront their shared past, the siblings have to contend with each other’s peculiarities—even as the strangest elements of all await them in the village. A wildly inventive and explosive dark comedy that’s as thoughtful as it is surprising, Butterflies defies expectation, balancing playfulness and razor-sharp writing with a heartfelt look at family bonds. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Description adapted from the Sundance Film Festival. (Dir.: Tolga Karaçelik, Turkey, 2018, 112 min. DCP, Turkish with English subtitles)
