The Butterfly Circus: A Drive to Hope

The Butterfly Circus: A Drive to Hope

The Butterfly Circus is a deeply touching short film directed by Joshua Weigel, which recently won the $100,000 grand prize at the Doorpost Film Project.  In the depths of the Great Depression, the ringmaster of a renowned circus leads his troupe through the devastated American landscape, lifting the spirits of audiences all along the way.  During their travels they encounter, Will, a quadriplegic who is living out his life in a cruel carnival sideshow.  It’s only when Will joins the Butterfly Circus that he acquires a drive to hope against everything he has ever believed, finally being able to realize his true potential.
