WHY CATERPILLAR BUTTERFLY?…

CATERPILLAR_BUTTERFLY IS 3 SHORT FILMS DEPICTING THE JOURNEY
FROM SELF-DOUBT, SELF HATE… TO SELF DETERMINATION AND SELF LOVE.

[I DREAM OF COCOBUTTER]…
She always knew she was different. At work she was surrounded by those who chose not to see her potential.
But even on her darkest days she couldn’t shake the belief that anything is possible if you work hard enough for it…

[TRUTH]…
When it came to love… She knew that one day someone would eventually see beyond her external trappings;
see the real woman and be unafraid to love her.

[BREAK THE SILENCE]…
The moment she decided that secrets had held her captive in a prison of shame and self loathing for long
enough was the moment she emerged as strength and beauty.

The trilogy was written and performed by NAIROBI THOMPSON and Directed and Filmed by SOULEYMAN GARCIA

OUTRO…

Does the caterpillar amid the drudgery of consuming everything in its path know that one day
after pupation it will emerge as a beautiful butterfly? Maybe not – but she knew…
She knew that one day everything she had consumed and absorbed – everything that
had become a part of her whether she wanted it there or not would one day
aid her transformation from caterpillar to Butterfly.
