A visually dazzling meditation on the delicate balance between human and nature, The Guardians elegantly melds the life cycle of the iconic monarch butterfly with the stories of an indigenous community in Mexico. Both species depend on the same ancient forest for their survival, and both now face an uncertain future. 

Director Tessa Moran will be joined by Dr. Nikolas Kristov from the Center for Design Innovation for a post-screening Q&A. Dr. Kristov will share his work on 3-D imaging and Laser Scanning technologies to gather data on the monarch migration.

And following the screening, nearby Señor Bravo’s Mexican Bar & Grill will be hosting a post-screening Happy Hour, offering a 10% discount to ticket-holders.
