Carice van Houten best actress Tribeca

Dutch actress Carice van Houten (STRICKEN, A WOMAN GOES TO THE DOCTOR, BLACK BOOK) was named best actress at this year’s Tribeca film festival in New York for her role as the South African writer Ingrid Jonker in BLACK BUTTERFLIES.

Jury comments on Van Houten's performance: “There are a million colors in this complicated performance. We award this honor for bravery and fragility, and for showing tremendous range and strength throughout.”

BLACK BUTTERFLIES is directed by Paula van der Oest (ZUS & ZO, TIRAMISU, ANOTHER MOTHER) and produced by IDTV Film (NL), in co-production with Riba Film International (NL), NTR (NL), Comet Film (DE) and Spier Productions (ZA).

The film tells the true story of the talented young South African poet Ingrid Jonker, a white artist and critic of the Apartheid regime. From an early age, Ingrid found freedom and solace only in writing. Despite the love of many men, and her relationship with the famous writer Jack Cope, no-one could give Ingrid what she was seeking. It was not until Nelson Mandela read one of her poems in his first speech to the South African Parliament that she finally found recognition.
