Kim Smith Black Swallowtail Film Program at the Seaside Garden Club

Kate Willwerth writes:

The Seaside Garden Club invites everyone to see the beautiful film by Kim Smith: “The Life Story of the Black Swallowtail Butterfly” on November 10th at the Manchester Community Center. Social time begins at 7:00 and the program begins promptly at 7:30.  Light refreshments will be served.

Life Story of the Black Swallowtail Butterfly is a 45-minute narrated film that takes place in a garden and at the sea’s edge. Every stage of the butterfly’s life cycle is experienced in vibrant close-up, from conception to pupation to metamorphosis. The film is suitable for all ages so all can gain a deeper understanding of the symbiotic relationship between wildflowers and pollinators and the vital role they play in our ecosystem. From earliest recorded history the butterfly has represented life’s momentous transformations. None more so than black butterflies. In some cultures black butterflies are thought to foretell death, and in others the return of a spirit to the living world. Continuing today, butterflies are associated with spiritual rebirth and transformation. Their metamorphosis from caterpillar to adult, along with their graceful beauty and vibrant wing patterning, inspires poets and artists universally across time and cultures. The ephemeral grace of the butterfly not only inspires hope but also gives us courage to be active in the search for solutions. The all-too-fragile link of the butterfly to the health of the environment embodies the urgent need for positive change. Filmed in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Discussion and Q & A with the filmmaker to follow the film’s showing.
