Created in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont by a mostly home-grown team, The Butterfly Queen is a farmpunk fairytale like you’ve never seen. Casey (a non-binary sheep Queerfarmer/cartoonist) and Robin (a committed vagabond) are lost in a magical forest, struggling to find Casey’s sketchbook so they can get the heck back home. Unfortunately, The Butterfly Queen wants the sketchbook too, and A) she’s clever, B) she’s desperate and C) she makes the rules. Includes a rusty knight, a portal salesperson and the tallest nightclub of your life.
The screening will be followed each evening by a Q&A and discussion with the director, Liam O’Connor-Genereaux, and select members of the cast & crew. The Butterfly Queen is the winner of Best Feature Film at the 2022 Chicago International Indie Film Festival.
