I’ve seen many of you at The Rafael Theater this year while attending the opening of some amazing music documentaries, such as: Twenty Feet From Stardom, Muscle Shoals, and Ain’t In For My Health (Levon Helm story). I am a huge fan of the documentaries of soulful musicians, and want to share some of the very rare music documentaries I’ve accumulated over the years. These are films that were produced in the same vein as the above-mentioned films.

For over 3000 years, the indigenous people who lived in Mexico, the Southwest and California, have celebrated a ritual honoring the dead. Over the time, this ritual became known as El Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead. A celebration of life, a time to share memories through arts and crafts, music, stories and food. Join us in celebrating those who have gone before us. El Dia de los Muertos is not a sad time but a time of remembering and rejoicing.
Traditional arts & crafts activities include sugar skulls, facepainting, and making small altars and offerings.
