Director: Hrund Gunnsteinsdóttir.

The Poem begins with a blank screen, and then words begin to appear. Gradually the words take the form of a little girl. Hrund Gunnsteinsdóttir wrote the poem “Butterfly,” which is used in the film. The goal is to deepen viewers’ understanding of the psychological state and life pattern of all too many women in developing countries.

Klikk Productions in collaboration with Hrund Gunnsteinsdóttir produced four artistic short films in relation to UNIFEM’s fundraising – The Butterfly Week in Iceland 2008. The films deal in an artistic way with the various manifestations of gender-based violence endured by women and girls in many parts of the world.
