Introspection can be great until it leads to answers you feared all along. "The butterflies have died" is a journey of self-discovery in the time of lockdown where the roads are sinister and the destination unknown. A film made in its entirety by Rinoshun gives you a first-person view into the world of doubt, guilt, and anxiety. The film is available to watch on YouTube.
Rinoshun on making the film:
'The butterflies have died' was made completely during the stringent lockdown in India. I was alone in the apartment and was going crazy with nothing to do and not being able to meet any other people. So, I thought I'll shoot something small because I had just my phone and nothing else. But then one thing led to another and by the time I knew, I had an 80-minute film with me. It was exciting to work with all the restrictions and I learned a lot from this. This was a solo project, that is everything in the film was done by me. But this also thought me a very valuable lesson, that filmmaking is more fun when there is a crowd along with you to make it.
