Join LARC for the special screening of our fall series of classic cinema with the highly-acclaimed Mexican film Macario (1960). Set in Colonial Mexico, the film tells the story of Macario, an impoverished laborer. On the eve of the Day of the Dead, he longs for a turkey meal, which his wife prepares for him. Subsequently, three mysterious deities visit him - God, the Devil and Death. After withholding the succulent turkey from both God  and the Devil, Macario finally offers half to Death, hoping the gesture will stave off his own demise. As a reward, Death offers Macario healing water that will work only at the discretion of Death himself.
