Visually stunning and emotionally gripping, the animated film Coco
, inspired by Dia de los Muertos, explores the intersections of family, culture, life, and even death. A celebration and commodification of Mexico’s rich cultural traditions, «Coco» not only invites viewers to share in the wonder and meaning of the holiday. It also enables viewers to better understand and address pressing issues affecting Arizona and the nation, including immigration and recent government actions that simultaneously disarm and provoke.
Free | Open to the public | Light refreshments provided
