Young South African poet Ingrid Jonker finds freedom and solace in writing, whenever and wherever she can. Rejected by her father, who works as Minister of Censorship in the Apartheid regime of 1960s South Africa, she struggles to find the warmth of love and of a home. Despite love affairs with many men and her long-standing relationship with the famous writer Jack Cope, no one can give Ingrid what she seeks. It is not until Nelson Mandela reads her poem « The child who was shot dead by soldiers in Nyanga » in his first speech to the South African Parliament that she finally finds widespread recognition.

A true story set in South Africa, 1960s, during Apartheid. This beautiful country is shown by director Paula van der Oest as a cruel place where blacks are physically marginalized (even abused and killed) and white children play where blacksare never even seen.
A courageous woman and sensitive artist whose number one enemy was her father, South Africa’s Minister of Censorship, poet Ingrid Jonker wants to change the rules of the game, love and be loved, find freedom in her writing, and shout out her sense of injustice to the world. Ingrid, as portrayed with admiration and solidarity by Carice vanHouten, walks barefoot through a suffering city in heartrending, metaphorical scenes. Neither friends nor lovers can makeher forget the pain of living in a society that in no way mirrors her freedom-loving spirit. In 1994, during his presidential inauguration, Nelson Mandela, read Jonker’s words of emotion, pain and hope, written years earlier for her beloved countrythat asked only to be free.

« Black Butterflies » is the riveting love- and life-story of young South African poet Ingrid Jonker. Directed by Oscar-nominee Paula van der Oest, it is a powerful portrait of a strong-headed woman and talented yet troubled artist during the Apartheid regime. Carice van Houten (« Valkyrie », « Black Book ») impersonates this character in a breathtaking tour de force and stars opposite Liam Cunningham (« The Wind That Shakes The Barley ») as her all-consuming love and Rutger Hauer (« Blade Runner », »Soldier of Orange ») as her oppressive father. In his first speech to the South African Parliament in 1994, Nelson Mandela read Ingrid Jonker’s poem « The Dead Child of Nyanga » and hailed her as one of the greatest poets of South Africa.

ITALIANO
Le farfalle nere sono donne silenziose che riescono a creare un tale chiasso attorno a se da mettere in difficoltà chi cercadi fermarle. Sud Africa, anni ‘60. Apartheid. Un paese meraviglioso descritto da una macchina da presa che raccontauna natura esplosiva e una storia crudele, in cui i neri vengono tenuti fuori dalle linee di confine (maltrattati, uccisi) e ibambini bianchi giocano dove i neri non si vedono neppure. Ingrid Jonker vuole cambiare le regole del gioco, amare edessere amata, cercare nella scrittura la propria libertà e vuole gridare al mondo il suo senso di giustizia. La storia (vera) diuna donna coraggiosa, artista sensibile che combatte contro il padre, Ministro della Censura, suo primo nemico. Ingrid (unaincantevole Carice van Houten), vista dallo sguardo ammirato e solidale di Paula van der Oest, si aggira scalza per una cittàsofferente in scene strazianti e metaforiche. Amici e amanti non riescono a farle dimenticare il dolore di vivere in una societàcosì lontana dal suo slancio vitale. Ma nel 1994, Nelson Mandela, nell’insediarsi alla presidenza del Sud Africa, leggerà leparole di commozione, dolore e speranza che l’artista scriveva anni prima per quel paese tanto amato che chiede solo diessere libero.

BLACK BUTTERFLIES gaat over het leven van de jonge Zuid-Afrikaanse kunstenares Ingrid Jonker (Carice van Houten), een gevoelige en rebelse geest die haar vrije ideeën over kunst, liefde en politiek met een kleine groep gelijkgestemde schrijvers en kunstenaars in Zuid-Afrika deelde, de Sestigers. Tegen de achtergrond van verzet tegen de censuur van de Nasionale Party, leeft Ingrid Jonker haar jonge leven tot het uiterste en wordt haar werk steeds bekender en meer gewaardeerd. Met haar vader Abraham Jonker (Rutger Hauer), een rechtse minister voor de Nasionale Party tijdens het Apartheidsregime, heeft ze een moeizame relatie. Ook Ingrid’s grote liefde, de schrijver Jack Cope (Liam Cunningham), lijkt haar niet het geluk en de gemoedsrust te kunnen geven waar ze naar op zoek is…
