Overview

Float Like a Butterfly (2018)

Baton Rouge Irish Film Festival 2019
presented by the Baton Rouge Irish Club

From the producers of Once (2007) and Sing Street (2016), Float Like a Butterfly is a powerful and timely story of a girl's fight for freedom and belonging. In a gender-reversal of classic film Billy Elliot, 15-year-old Frances has to fight for the right to fight back. Raised in roadside camps in rural Ireland, Frances wants to champion her people inside the boxing ring and out, like her idol Muhammad Ali. But society is determined to break her spirit and destroy her way of life. And her father, once her greatest ally, is too defeated himself to imagine any better for his daughter. But Frances was not born to be broken. In the mother of all fights, she must dig deep to find in herself the champion her father once knew her to be.

Director: Carmel Winters
Writer: Carmel Winters
Starring: Hazel Doupe, Dara Devaney, Johnny Collins
