‚ÄúButterfly, Butterfly‚ÄĚ (2022)¬†is a personal journey of remembrance through 30 years of filming children all over the world as it pertains to child labor.¬†The film is a measure of gains made in¬†eliminating child labor.¬†The film had its world premiere at The United Nations Association Film Festival at the¬†end of October 2022.
