My second Day of the Dead is posted a day late, due to my performing at a Celtic Festival in North Louisiana. Though there are many movies that have scenes of the Dia de Muertos, here some movies I’d recommend you watching if you want to learn more about this important day:
Coco: Here’s the official trailer:
Book of Life: A great movie for kids!
UNDER THE VOLCANO: Set in small Mexican Town on Day of the Dead in 1938
THE HALLOWEEN TREE: Based on a Ray Bradbury novel. I met Bradbury and he is one of my literary heroes!
MACARIO: Takes place on the eve of the Day of the. Dead and was the first Mexican movies nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards!
