"Each year, for one day, the dead return." Epic Pictures is releasing this observational documentary film experience titled Day of the Dead to celebrate the Mexican tradition. The film's full title is officially Day of the Dead: A Celebration of Life, and it's made by a graphic designer / doc filmmaker named Denise Richards. Each year, the spirits of the dead return to visit the living in this fascinating look into the famous Mexican tradition, Day of the Dead also known as Día de Los Muertos (on November 2nd this year). All throughout Mexico, various rituals are performed to honor the spirits of the dead. Families come together on this day to celebrate the life of their ancestors and lost loved ones. Day of the Dead has been featured in plenty of films, including prominently in Pixar's Coco and Bond's Spectre most recently. A more humble and appreciative look at this beloved Mexican event than all the exaggerated depictions of it in modern media.
