Coco film screening
Tuesday 2 November at 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Don’t miss our film screening of the acclaimed Disney Pixar film, Coco – inspired by the Day of the Dead holiday. Sink into one of our comfy sofas, enjoy some free snacks, and sit back and relax for the Global Lounge’s first film night! Coco features an all-Latino principal cast, and won two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (Remember Me) after its release.
During this event you will have an opportunity to learn more about how people of Mexico celebrate the life of the loved ones who departed, during Day of the Dead. The representatives from Mexican Culture Society will join us to introduce you to what this holiday means, and will also answer questions on which traditions depicted in the movie are real, and which are fiction.
This event is being run in conjunction with our Day of the Dead celebration; come and visit us in the Lounge as we pay homage to this vibrant annual festival. The Mexican Culture Society has set up an altar to honour those in their families and community who have passed, and warmly welcome you to do the same. Find out more by visiting the event page.
