Julián (2025)

1 x 90 minute feature film


Julián is the story of a 7 year old boy who wants to be a mermaid. The wide-eyed Julián spends a summer of discovery in NYC with his Abuela. Nearly strangers, they brace themselves for tense conversations and new adventures. The colourful chaos of Abuela’s world, and the stories she tells him, awakens something within Julián...questions about who he is and who he could be.  Through Abuela’s world, Julián explores his identity, gender expression and the hidden heritage of his family. Adapted from the storybook by Jessica Love.

Produced by Aircraft Pictures, Cartoon Saloon, Melusine Productions and Sun Creature  in association with Wychwood Media.
