Independent filmmaker Deb Wallwork’s 2016 film The Butterfly Effect is a documentary film about hope, beauty, transformation and resilience. It presents stories from a variety of people, artists, teachers, farmers, Native Americans, and wildlife ecologists, who are concerned about the dwindling population of an important pollinator: the monarch butterfly. The film interweaves personal narrative, experimental film, and animation with the inspiring stories of those determined to change the world one milkweed at a time.
