  • [on the locations and look of The Butterfly Tree (2017)] What I tend to see in Australia a lot was that we would make films that had a very dry and dusty feel. I thought that Australia has so many other beautiful landscapes to offer. I sort of felt that the films that I referenced created vibrancy and lushness and those color palettes that really kind of make you sit up and pay attention. [2017]
  • [why she chose to write The Butterfly Tree (2017) about a young boy] Part of me thinks that maybe in my essence, my soul is actually male. It might sound a bit weird, but I grew up on a cattle station in Australia and was surrounded by a lot of men and I was always a tomboy, so ... I relate very well to men. I don't specifically choose "Oh, this character definitely has to be female or definitely has to be male," it just sort of develops out of what feels organically right for the story. [2017]
  • [on The Butterfly Tree (2017)] We were supported for script development through Screen Australia back here. Then the script won the Australian Writers Guild Unproduced Screenplay Award, and then as a director, I was selected to go to Binger [Directors Lab], which is in Amsterdam, and then from that point we started doing the markets. All of the financing is Australian. [2017]
