Friday, November 2, 2018 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Join the UCF Libraries in celebrating Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. This is a traditional Mexican holiday when families and friends gather to honor and remember those that have died. Typically on Day of the Dead, elaborate altars are created and offerings are made to aid loved ones on their spiritual journey.

Documentary film screening with introduction and discussion by Anthropology professor Dr. Beatriz Reyes-Foster

Mexico from the BBC “Feasts” series:
Series in which food writer and presenter Stefan Gates immerses himself in some of the most extraordinary feasts and festivals on earth. By joining ordinary people in these strange and wonderful distillations of their culture and beliefs, he hopes to gain a revelatory insight into how the world thinks and feels. Stefan goes on a wild emotional and spiritual rollercoaster ride that ends with the Day of the Dead, a cacophonous cross-cultural festival of the senses during which Mexicans believe that their loved ones come back from the dead for three days every year to spend the day with them.
