Join us for a special film screening of Coco, the story of a young boy named Miguel, an aspiring musician who goes in search of his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer in Mexico. Miguel embarks upon his search during the Day of the Dead, when according to Mexican tradition, the border controls between life and death relax and the departed are allowed temporary passage to the land of the living. Only in this case, Miguel makes the trip, through metaphysical loopholes, in reverse and is transported into the magical and enchanting world of the dead, full of vibrant color, music, mischief – and above all, love.
This special screening of Coco – which includes movie snacks – is a fundraiser for The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, a non-profit organization providing free legal and social services to detained adults and unaccompanied children facing immigration removal proceedings in Arizona – on any given day, 5,000 immigrant men, women, and unaccompanied minors are detained in Arizona.
