Cuisine en fanfare
A lyric passage of a Monarch butterfly is depicted in this film, beginning with its birth through its delicate metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly and on its perilous journey from country to city. Adversaries from a praying mantis to a railroad train to humans threaten the butterfly’s freedom. Images are accompanied by music from Chopin. Directed and produced by Robin Lehman. 1975 Academy Award-winner, Best Short Documentary.
