The trailer for Scott Corbett‘s pensive and striking short film, Good Night Butterfly, has officially launched.

Written and directed by Scott Corbett, Good Night Butterfly is a contemplative period piece about loss and longing in the troubled, destabilizing year of 1965. After her father is killed during the Watts riots, a Chinese immigrant girl moves in with the Jewish family who owned the store where he had worked.

“When I started writing this story, what interested me was the way people relate to one another after experiencing loss. That kind of connection – the recognition of someone else’s pain on an unspoken level – is more profound to me than the fickle, often superficial nature of romantic love,” Scott says.

Produced by Station Film, the film features a crew of talented industry veterans including Emmy-winning composer Stephen Thomas Cavit and acclaimed colorist Alex Bickel. Good Night Butterfly will premiere at the Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF) in New York, which takes place July 26th – August 5th. More details to follow on the official film page and on the Station Film site.
