Son of Monarchs Trailer

“Science meets magical realism.” Warner Media / 150 and Labocine have debuted an official trailer for the acclaimed indie drama Son of monarchs, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2021 earlier this year. It won the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize for science / tech filmmaking at the party and also won the New American Cinema Grand Prize at the Seattle Film Festival. After his grandmother’s death, a Mexican biologist living in NYC returns to his hometown, nestled in the majestic monarch butterfly forests of Michoacán, Mexico. The journey forces him to confront past traumas and reflect on his hybrid identity and trigger a personal and spiritual metamorphosis. Tenoch Huerta Mejia stars in this as Mendel, along with Alexia Rasmussen, Lazaro Gabino Rodriguez, Noah Hernandez, Paulina Gaitan, and William Mapother. This looks like an exquisite and thoughtful feature, I look forward to seeing it.

Here is the official trailer (+ poster) for Alexis Gambis’ Son of monarchs, directly from YouTube:
