A beautiful moth leads us towards the waiting room of an abandoned railway station. Suddenly a surreal situation comes to life. Inspired by the work of the Belgian surrealist painter Paul Delvaux.
“Nocturnal Butterfliesis the only film that was entirely made in the ‘Servaisgraphy technique’. It proved to be a very interesting technique in the field of visual result, but became obsolete because of the complicated labour it required and the development of digital technology.”
