Written by Marisela Treviño Orta | Directed By Denise Yvette Serna
In a potentially parallel timeline where a climate apocalypse has wiped out animals and insects, an entomologist and her brother follow a migration of monarch butterflies to what they hope is the last viable place on earth. Their encounter with a young group that fled the city to a truffle farm leads to earnest realizations and interpersonal conflict about acclimating beyond the world they once knew. With wit, whimsy, and the forces of nature, Marisela Treviño Orta’s Somewhere speculates on climate refugee migration, science vs the supernatural, environmental sustainability, and how shifts in the globe make changes in ourselves.
"We are in relationship with the planet, and we rely on the planet, and the planet consumes and destroys, regenerates and decomposes."
