Narrative Feature Drama - USA/Mexico- Production: January 2019
As part of the pre-production, we directed and produced a series made up of three short films: Mi Hermano (My Brother), La Que Sueña (She Who Dreams), and Los Mimos Monarcas (The Monarch Mimes). These were shot in 2017 in Michoacan and New York City and capture key themes, style and tone that make up the feature Son of Monarchs.
A boy learns about the meaning of death from his grandmother when the butterflies carrying the souls of the dead arrive to his hometown in Michoacan, Mexico.
A young Mexican biologist discusses the reasons for her transformation...into a Monarch butterfly.
After the death of her partner and the rest of the migrating butterflies, the last monarch survivor has one last message to tell humanity.
