Discussion Points or Reflection Assignments

  1. What is Dia de Los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) and why did people in the film celebrate it?
  2. Why was the song “Remember Me” significant?  How did it link in with the family’s history and the film’s overall message?
  3. How would you describe The Land of the Dead?  What sorts of colors were there? Was it a scary place?  Why did some people keep disappearing?
  4. Would you describe Coco as a happy or sad film, or do with think it was a bit of both? Why?
  5. Draw a picture, write a song, or create a short story or poem to acknowledge somebody in your family or someone else close to you.  Be sure to include what you like best about them and some of their most distinctive characteristics. Also think about if there is a particular place or location that you associate with them and try to incorporate it into your work.
