My favorite seasonal animations all in one place. I love these little films -- funny, poignant, and a reminder that even death cannot stop the desire for love. Enjoy these while ripping open all those little brightly packaged candies meant for the tricktreaters...
"Hasta Los Huesos" or "Down to the Bone" from director René Castillo, 2010 Hasta los Huesos (nstituto Mexicano de Cinematografía / Calavera Films). How to come to terms with dying -- which in true Mexican fashion involves drinking, singing, and remembering.
"To Die By Your Side": I love this racy, charming little stop animation video created by filmmaker Spike Jonze and designer Olympia Le-Tan. For a bookish person who thinks all bookstores are magical places anyway, it is wonderful to see the naughty night romances of the cover illustrations.
And just because even in 1929, with the Great Depression hanging on the world, Disney skeletons still found life and music worth celebrating.
