First-time feature director Dario Nardi’s Sadourni’s Butterflies is a labour of love that he started as far back as 1998. It took some time to find a producer willing to risk financing a stylized, surrealistic melodrama about a circus dwarf jailed for a crime of passion; released early for good behavior, he finds work dubbing fetish films and quickly becomes besotted with a beautiful fellow voice-over ariste and dreams of the operation that would make her attainable. (The right fairy godfather did come along eventually: Don Ranvaud, the man behind City of God, Central Station and Farewell My Concubine.)

Trained in animation and illustration, Nardi has created a visually stunning film, something redolent of film noir, German expressionism, Tod Browning and Alejandro Jodorowski (El Topo; Santa Sangre). But this is not simply pastiche; Nardi has created a strange and magical movie about identity, alienation, and daring to dream. The result is utterly captivating.

Director Dario Nardi expected to attend January 6 and January 9 screenings
