Animated movies being a big part of the creative world and MICA students' lives, it is important to celebrate these visually wonderful films made by Latin and Mexican animators and artists. There has been much debate over Disney's new releasing of another Day of the Dead film ("Coco") coming this Thanksgiving since the independently-made "The Book of Life" movie was recently made under a similar storyline. Students should be given a chance to celebrate both works rather than compare them as well as celebrate and further understand Mexican Day of the Dead culture.
Students can come to watch a screening of The Book of Life in Leake Lecture on Friday 12/1, and those who sign up will be given free tickets and transportation to watch Coco in theaters.
