The Butterfly`s Dream: San Diego Screening
Followed by Q&A; panel with the actress and the composer.
The Butterfly's Dream (Turkish: Kelebeğin Rüyası) is a 2013 Turkish drama written and directed by Yılmaz Erdoğan. The film has been selected as the Turkish entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards.
The film centers on two young poets in the 1940s of Turkey who make a bet on a pretty girl -- whichever poem the girl likes will win, and the other will step aside.
The poets, however, have to deal with other problems such as disease, poverty, compulsory work in the mines and the Second World War in the meantime.
