Pixar’s Coco and Mexio’s Day of the Dead
Mexico’s initiative to expand greater awareness of Mexico’s most prominent death festival, The Day of the Dead exemplified through Pixar’s latest animation film, Coco. This is an attempt to celebrate and remember Mexico’s death traditions, while reconnecting this most meaningful of festivals with the younger generation. The film tackles a controversial subject for children without making it morbid. In the midst of celebrating death, we celebrate and appreciate life, for all that it has and will throw at us.
