Symmetry unraveled documentary


Butler worked  as Dramaturgist  on the Movie symmetry by Ruben Van Leer.

Symmetry is a 20 minute sci-fi dance & opera film, in which CERN-researcher Lukas is thrown off balance while working on the theory of everything and the smallest particle.

Through Claron’s singing he rediscovers love, on an endless landscape. She takes him along to the moment before the Big Bang, when time didn’t exist; a love with no end.
