BUTTERFLY CITY  by Dublin-based Planet Korda Pictures

to celebrate its World Premiere at 2017 Galway Film Fleadh

Premiere: Friday 14 July, 12:15 p.m.

On  Friday,  14  July  the  new  documentary  by  Lithuanian  director  Olga Černovaitė,  BUTTERFLY  CITY, produced by Dublin based Jeremiah Cullinane for Planet Korda Pictures, will celebrate its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh as part of the official selection.

BUTTERFLY CITY is a portrait of the purpose-built Russian-speaking Lithuanian city Visaginas, refusing to  die  along  with  its  defunct  Soviet-era  nuclear power  plant.  At  a  moment  of  economic  turbulence  and political tension, the residents face an uncertain future.

Synopsis: The Lithuanian city of Visaginas was created from nothing in the 1970s in order to service a powerful Soviet nuclear power station. Literally designed and shaped like the wings of a butterfly, it was intended to be a window of Soviet progress to the West. After USSR disintegration, however, EU membership meant Lithuania had to close the plant, the city’s main industry. At a time  of  growing  geo-political  tension,  and  in  an  ambiance  of  mutual mistrust,  what  future  for  the  25,000  Russian-speaking townspeople? 

Refusing to take sides on particular grievances in this sensitive situation, the film is simply another way of asking a rather universal question: if there is a way for different communities living as citizens in the same democratic country to maintain their identity, respect that of others, and live together without fear or suspicion.
