In honor of dias de los muertos (Wednesdy October 31st – Friday, November 2nd), the Art of Dying will present a showing of Disney’s Pixar animated film COCO, with a follow-on discussion.

Dias de los muertos, or day of the dead, is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions,

and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It may include the creation of altars and traditional foods to remember and honor the dead.

This ritual is acknowledged internationally in many cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died and help support their spiritual journey.
