Dreams of the Last Butterflies
Zina Brown, Brooklyn, NY, Short, 9:30, Brooklyn Premiere!

Dreams of the Last Butterflies is a live-action 'dark faerie tale' short film with an urgent environmental message. A tale about the loss of butterflies in our world, and why they are disappearing, as told by the last Butterfly Queens themselves.

Dreams of the Last Butterflies combines otherworldly costumes, epic faerie-tale poetry, cutting-edge cinematography, and a new song by electronic artist Kai Altair. The film features stunning performances by tribal bellydancers, ballerinas, fire masters, contortionists, and a cast of New York City's underground stars. Each Butterfly Queen represents an endangered butterfly from around the world, and together they enter human dreams hoping to save the last of their kind.
