¡Viva México! Film Series: “Macario”

7 – 9 pm

Poor, hungry peasant Macario longs for just one good meal on the Day of the Dead. After his wife cooks a turkey for him, he meets three apparitions: the Devil, God and Death. Each asks to share his turkey, but he refuses all except Death. In return, Death gives him a bottle of water that will heal any illness. Soon, Macario is wealthier than the village doctor, which draws the attention of the feared Inquisition. With prints by TGP founder Leopoldo Méndez during the opening credits. Directed by Roberto Gavaldón. 1959, 91 min. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition “El Taller de Gráfica Popular: Vida y Arte.” This film series is generously sponsored by UGA Parents & Families Association.
