Évora will discover a new world upon entering university. She will have to face not just those who reject her, but the fear of her own past. To survive in a world where some people have multicolored skin with constant variations in color, tone and texture, according to their emotional state, Évora transforms herself.
In a world where people are divided between three cultures of very different beliefs (Lithics, Chrysions and Chromas), the Chromas, people who have multicolored skin, are treated as second class citizens. Évora is a chroma girl and becomes the key piece in the Chroma people's resistance struggle, when she discovers that she has a rare power that she doesn't want to accept. While the Rosa Chroma guerrilla group, which defends the civil rights of the Chromas, tries to rescue their imprisoned comrades, deputy Haid Bucke, one of the biggest anti-Chromas voices in parliament, is invited to take over the General Command of the Police, promoting a relentless pursuit. After losses on both sides, Évora finally manages to master her power and enters into an intense clash with Bucke's extremist police in the incident that becomes known as the March of the Roses.
The animated fiction feature film (2D and 3D) project is a co-production between Druzina Content (Porto Alegre/RS) and Petit Fabrik (Manaus/AM), the same pair of producers responsible for Lupita on the Planet of the Grown-Ups, Lupita Around the Planet, Lupita Curiosities, Tiny Apocalypse, among others. Our north-south partnership has lasted more than 15 years!
About the Technique
The mixed technique film mixes 2D and 3D animation and tells a story about prejudice and self-acceptance that dialogues with several contemporary contexts. “March of the Roses” presents an audiovisual metaphor that draws parallels with prejudice and discrimination in its most varied manifestations under a new perspective. The story takes place in a universe where there are some people and objects are "multicolored" represented in 2D animation, while the other characters, scenarios and objects are in 3D animation. There are also semi-micromes, whose skin presents polychromatic “spots” of different sizes and shapes.
