ASWSUG Dia de los Muertos Movie Night

November 2 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Popcorn spilling out of its container and a film marker that producers use on set.

Join us in watching Coco, a well-loved movie, highlighting the Dia de los Muertos tradition (a Disney+ subscription is required).

With inspiration from the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead), Miguel is a young musician, despite his family’s music ban, who looks up to the late musician Ernesto de la Cruz. After Miguel discovers a photo of his great-great-grandfather holding Ernesto’s famous guitar he is left with unanswered questions which leads him to want to learn more about his ancestors, so he goes on a journey to do just that. Miguel’s grandmother destroys his guitar after Miguel shares that he plans to become a musician, he steals Ernesto’s guitar. After strumming it once, Miguel becomes invisible and can interact with relatives visiting from the Land of the Dead- in skeletal dead form. Along the way, Miguel meets Hector, and the two become unexpected friends who unleash the questions, mysteries, and traditions of Miguel’s family.

This is an opportunity to Earn Involvement Points.
