Maksim Nackonechnyi brings to Cannes his first feature film, after having directed some documentaries. We talk about this shift and how it has influenced his filmmaking for Butterfly Vision and about war and taking sides.

Butterfly Vision: After spending months as a prisoner in Donbas, Ukrainian aerial reconnaissance expert Lilia returns home to her family. But the trauma of captivity continues to torment her and surface in dreamlike ways. Something growing deep within Lilia will not allow her to forget, yet she refuses to identify as a victim and will fight to liberate herself.
