„Tomorrow And The Butterfly“ – Stories about sustainability, beauty and diversity of the world. „Tomorrow And The Butterfly“ is the latest film by award-winning Italian director Alessandro Soetje. The film is a full-length documentary shot in six episodes, telling stories about sustainability, beauty and diversity around the world, with Davines Group Chairman Davide Bollati and his vision as the centrepiece of the work.
The Davines Group is a global luxury beauty company based in Parma, Italy, and Davide Bollati, with his versatile personality, has a unique and diverse vision of beauty. He asks the question, „How can you have beauty without sustainability? They go well together because you cannot have one without the other.“
The film deals with some of the most important topics and issues of our time – sustainability, human trafficking and women’s empowerment. „Tomorrow And The Butterfly“ takes viewers on a journey from Parma through Tuscany to Cambodia to Portland, Oregon. The common denominator in the episodes is the true stories and the independent but collective belief that something really beautiful and good is possible.
“Tomorrow And The Butterfly“ was first unveiled in May in Reykjavik, Iceland, where the Davines Group held its annual conference, the World Wide Hair Tour 2019. The screening was a major success and received many accolades.
The filmmaker hopes that the film will show that the relationship between beauty and sustainability is profound and can improve the lives of the citizens of the world.
“Tomorrow And The Butterfly“ has premiered in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Berlin, and several cities in Italy, and is currently on the festival circuit. More screenings are planned for the new year.
The film has also received three nominations at the 2019 Cinefashion Film Awards by Cinémoi TV to be held on December 9 in Beverly Hills.
