PAN’S LABYRINTH meets ALICE IN WONDERLAND in TALES FOR FAERIES.

This is not a children’s story.

Set in a twisted, dark, land of magic, we watch as Voluptas struggles to find her way and her wings. Along the journey, she meets a strange cast of characters including a cat-child, a wize riddle-filled elderly woman, and a being who can only ask questions. This short deals with complicated themes told through fantasy and imagery, opening the imagination and filling it with wonder.

Written as if it were ‘folklore for non-humans,’ Tales for Faeries gives us a glimpse into another world with fantastical elements while staying grounded in a very ‘human’ emotional journey.
