A Butterfly's Heart movie

Event Details

Enjoy the Lithuanian kids film A Butterfly’s Heart with English subtitles at the Academy Cinema as part of the Lithuanina Film Festival on 17th July 2022.

Juozapas is a quiet boy who breeds insects in an abandoned house and always wears a wide sweater. That’s why the other kids call him Balloon. But then Rugilė moves to the city. She becomes friends with Juozapas and is the first to learn about his secret. Friendship works wonders! Thanks to Rugilė, Juozapas overcame his fears and became open to the world.

“A Butterfly’s Heart is a film that explores a very relevant and serious topic of bullying but presents it easily, positively and instructively, and can evolve only the most positive feelings. It will allow the audience to immerse themselves instantly in this story, which is worth watching for both young and older viewers. I would encourage teachers to take their pupils to watch this film at the cinema and discuss the topic of bullying after the screening.”, – Delfi film review.
