It's time once again for Pagan Popcorn! Join CUUPS for a movie night featuring a movie with Pagan themes.
This time we will be viewing «Coco»--The award-winning (2 Oscars and an additional 93 wins from other film industry awards organizations) Disney/Pixar film. The movie follows the Mexican boy Miguel on an epic journey into the Land of the Dead: Despite his family's baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history.
We will enjoy the movie and discuss the mythologic and potentially Pagan themes the movie incorporates.
*We were originally going to show this movie in October in honor of Dia de los Muertos, but we bumped it up in the event rotation in order to have a Pride decorating event and Mabon ritual. So we can just get into the Samhain spirit a bit early. ;-)
