Saturday Movies Nov. 3
Our First Saturday Movies Series at 1 pm. Free and open to all. Coco is a 2017 American 3D animated fantasy film produced by Pixar Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The concept for Coco is inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead holiday. The film was praised for its animation, voice acting, music, emotional story, and respect for Mexican culture. The film won two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song. For Latinos, “Coco” is not just a visually resplendent animated film with a poignant story about the importance of family. It’s also a rallying cry. “I am certain that Disney/Pixar did not set out to make this a political film, but that is exactly what they have done,” said Benjamin Bratt, “‘Coco’ inspires love around the world, and for Latinos in particular.”
