Director: Chen Chen (SocDoc Thesis Production Grant)
Opened by the Changsha (China) Social Welfare Institute to care for terminally ill children, Butterfly Home gives the kids everything they can. Filmed during COVID-19, when the nurses quarantined on-site 15 days a month, devoted to the children’s needs, above even their own families. They also struggled with Butterfly Home’s near-collapse due to lack of funds and supplies; as the kids fought their own battles. They saved each other, and they cured me.
