Podcast host Stuart Wright talks to director Rafael Kapelinski about his debut feature film Butterfly Kisses and the World Premiere on Saturday 11 February 2017 at the Berlin International Film Festival.
At the housing estate they call home, Jake, Kyle and Jarred hang around playing billiards, partying, smoking pot, watching porn, and talking about sex. They welcome anything that breaks the routine, even if it’s a fight at the snooker hall – or a new neighbour such as the pretty Zara, a teenage girl who just moved into the estate with her younger sister. Standing at the window on the top floor, Jake can survey the whole housing block. Something about this place captivates him; the solitude, the isolation, the anonymity. In high contrast black and white, set to haunting organ music, the film portrays the life of a teenager whose increasing isolation takes on a sinister form under the burden of a secret he cannot tell anyone.
The full album Nathan Klein’s score for Butterfly Kisses will be released by Air-Edel Records 11/02/2017. Available via all major platforms including iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.
