Bud Watch Party ~ La Ofrenda: The Days of the Dead
- Virtual Event -- Access Info Below
La Ofrenda: The Days of the Dead is a thorough look at the Mexican celebration of the dead, the sacred days when the souls of the departed return to visit the living. Tracing the Days of the Dead tradition from its roots in Indian culture to its manifestations in contemporary Chicano communities, this unconventional and visually arresting documentary contemplates the loving and sometimes humorous Mexican cultural attitudes toward “that constant companion,” death. Watch the film, then visit the Dia de los Muertos Community Altar in Library Hall Nov. 1-4.
