The Greg Latter scripted BLACK BUTTERFLIES was a critics' pick in this week's New York Times ahead of its New York opening. The film previously played in the city during the Tribeca Film Festival where it garnered strong reviews and made many critics' festival watch lists, including Sound on Sight and indieWIRE.

BLACK BUTTERFLIES, directed by Paula van der Oest, is the story of Ingrid Jonker, the women hailed as the South African Sylvia Plath. Greg's script is set in 1960s Cape Town, as a young Jonker discovers her creative voice amid the stifling atmosphere of apartheid and the overbearing eye of her rigid father, a government censorship minister (played by Rutger Hauer). As tensions rise, Ingrid witnesses an unconscionable event that will determine the route of both her creative and personal life.
