Calling Home the Dead
Oct 29
$2 | free for members
As the villagers of Lake Pátzcuaro lovingly clean and prepare the graves with beautiful handmade ofrendas, blankets of marigolds, special foods–they prepare for a shared remembrance called Día de los Muertos: Day of the Dead. They shoot rockets into the heavens to awaken the departed souls and call them home. More tone poem than traditional documentary, Calling Home the Dead transports the viewer in a compelling celebration of the continuity of life and the enduring love of family and friends. Images saturated with color and life join a magical soundtrack of original and local music; and a window is opened to another world. (Jim Hill & Meesh Rheault Miller, 2011, Mexico, 47 minutes, NR)
In Spanish with English subtitles
