18 Dec 2018 : News Desk
A new trailer has just released for Carmel Winter’s new Irish boxing drama.

‘Float Like a Butterfly’ is an inspirational coming-of-age story of an Irish girl from the Travelling community and the pursuit of her dream to be a boxer. 15-year-old Frances has been raised in roadside camps in rural Ireland and wants to become a boxing champion like her idol Muhammad Ali. However, she must overcome cultural and familial hurdles to achieve her dreams.

The feature film recently picked up the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) prize for the Discovery programme at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The film also won the Audience Award in Cork where it had its Irish premiere in November. Starring are Hazel Doupe (Ripper Street), Dara Devaney (Camelot), Aidan O’Hare (The Wind That Shakes The Barley), Lalor Roddy (Hunger), Hilda Fay (The Cured), Packy Lee (Peaky Blinders) and newcomer Johnny Collins.

Speaking on the Opening Gala for the 63rd Cork Film Festival, Cork director Carmel Winters said: 

“I love the worlds that met in the making of this film. I am so proud that these worlds will come together again to celebrate our European premiere in Cork. I couldn't wish for a better home-coming for Float like a Butterfly.”

Producers are Martina Niland (Sing Street) for Port Pictures and David Collins (Once) for Samson Films with funding from Screen Ireland in association with the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and RTÉ Television. Cathleen Dore (Snap) is co-producer; executive producer was Lesley McKimm for Screen Ireland.

Crew members include composer Stephen Warbeck (Billy Elliot), editor Julian Ulrichs (Sing Street) and DoP Michael Lavelle (His & Hers). The film was post-produced at EGG Post-production in Dublin.

‘Float Like a Butterfly’ is expected to release in early 2019.
