Nadia, Butterfly (18+)

Queensland Premiere

Directed by retired Olympic swimmer turned filmmaker Pascal Plante, this quietly confronting drama is defined by an amazing performance from Olympic swimmer turned actor Katerine Savard.

While young and in her prime, Nadia (Savard) decides to retire from professional swimming after the (fictious) 2020 Olympic Games; to escape a rigid life of sacrifice. After her very last race, Nadia drifts into nights of excess punctuated by episodes of self-doubt. But even this transitional numbness cannot conceal her true inner quest: defining her identity outside the world of elite sports.

“Olympian Katerine Savard dives into acting in this sensitive coming-of-age drama from the Cannes 2020 selection about a 21-year-old swimmer on the cusp of retirement.” Indiewire
