Patrick Frater Asia Bureau Chief Korea’s Barunson E&A has picked up world sales rights to Vietnamese horror-comedy “Don’t Cry Butterfly.” Sales will be launched this week at the Cannes Market.

Written and directed by Duong Dieu Linh, the Hanoi-set film follows a housewife who uses voodoo to try and get her cheating husband fall back into love with her, but instead invites a mysterious presence into the house.

The film marks the feature film directorial debut of Duong Dieu Linh, and is also a companion piece to her award-winning short film series about middle-aged women.

These include “A Trip to Heaven,” “Sweet, Salty” and “Mother, Daughter, Dreams.” As with the shorts, “Butterfly” explores recurring themes of womanhood, family relations and cultural traditions, and is told through a quirky sense of humor and use of magical realism. “We are excited to be a part of Duong Dieu Linh’s captivating debut, as we truly believe that she is a filmmaker with unique style and voice […] ‘Don’t Cry, Butterfly’ occasionally presents humorous moments as it explores themes such as men’s infidelity and voodoo, yet it also offers a resonating portrayal of the lives of two women, a mother and daughter, living in Vietnam in the 2000s,” said Sylvie Kim, head of international business at Barunson E&A.
