CINECLUB MEXICO closes up the month of the Day of the Dead in collaboration with the Mexican Institute of Cinematography by presenting five award winning short films that celebrate this Mexican tradition:

– “Hasta los Huesos” (Down to the Bone, 2001) by Rene Castillo.

It is the story of a man and his arrival in the world of the dead, where he is greeted by a worm, smiling skulls and the Catrina herself. Little by little our character discovers that, except for some inconveniences, being dead is not so bad.
