“Mariposa” is a poetic exploration on single motherhood through the words of contemporary poet Rachel Inez Marshall. Filled with vivid imagery — roaming closeups of bodies and faces, searching for light and texture — the film by Kristian Mercado Figueroa, is an ode to motherhood and fleeting moments of calm or strife, love or anger. Figueroa has a wonderful feel for the way sound and images come together, and he delivers poignancy with breathless splicing and impassioned voiceover. - No Budge Films
