La Santa Muerte: Saint Death

2007 NR

Looking for spiritual solace, the disenfranchised of Mexico City's slums worship the skeletal figure of Saint Death. Filmmaker Eva Aridjis examines the role this icon plays in the lives of gang members, prisoners, transsexuals and everyday people. In their need for hope, this disparate group of poor and indigent finds a tangible presence in death that no other religious figure can provide. Gael García Bernal narrates.
