A recently discovered monarch butterfly subspecies (Danaus plexippus eclipsis) possesses strange toxins in their scales that provoke powerful nervous alterations in their predators. 

Eclipsis is a sci-fi short film that speculates –narratively and sensorially– around what happens to human beings if they enter in contact with this imaginary butterfly. Intertwining the vivid microscopic colors and textures in 4K, the sway of the human body registered in Super 8mm and archival footage, this film imagines a multispecies crossroads.
