Flor de Muertos at the Rialto

Flor De Muertos Trailer (2011) from Brink Media on Vimeo.

Flor de Muertos, the documentary shot largely at the 2009 All Souls Procession and the Calexico and friends concert that followed at the Rialto Theatre, will be screened all weekend at the Rialto. Stephen Seigel wrote about it in this week's Soundbites:

If you missed the sold-out world-premiere screening of Flor de Muertos at the Loft back in May, have no fear. The Rialto Theatre, where much of the film was shot during Calexico's annual Dia de Los Muertos blowout concert in 2009, will be showing the film four times over the weekend, with bonus live performances attached to a couple of them.

The documentary was directed by BrinkMedia's Dan Vinik and intersperses concert footage from that 2009 show with scenes of the All Souls Procession, and interviews about the border situation and the attitude toward death in Mexican culture. Reports from the premiere screening were overwhelmingly positive, so don't miss it this weekend.

Flor de Muertos shows at the Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St., at the following times: 8 p.m., Friday, July 22 (patio reception begins at 6 p.m. with a performance by Salvador Duran; $10); 2:30 p.m., Saturday, July 23 ($6); 8 p.m., Saturday, July 23 (a performance by Mariachi Luz de Luna will follow; $15; free admission for film crew listed in credits); 2:30 p.m., Sunday, July 24 ($6). All showings are open to all ages. For more information, call 740-1000, or check out The Rialto Theatre.
