About the Film: 'Winter Butterfly' follows the life of a mother and son who live on the edge of North Korean society, barely scraping by and getting enough to eat by collecting and selling wood. The film follows the pair as they spiral into despair. (Warning: Some viewers may find parts of the film disturbing.)
'Winter Butterfly' is based on lives Kim Gyoo-min personally witnessed in North Korea. Kim is one of only a few film directors who are from North Korea. Winter Butterfly has been screened at the United Nations.
