“Son of Monarchs” is about immigration, but this is no ordinary story of border crossing. This lush Mexican drama tells a story about climate change and cultural identity using the allegory of monarch butterflies’ migration. It’s a larger statement about the planet’s disappearing treasures under catastrophic climate change. The film’s rich imagery will be imprinted in your memory, returning to you in dreams.
