THE MAGIC REALISM of DEATH
WE DIE is a feature documentary written and directed by Rebeca Sánchez López.
Documentary about the conception of the death observed from three minority communities that reflect perfectly three essential phases of this process: pre-mortem, mortem and post-mortem. Reality and magic realism come together in a statement on the commonness of the acceptance and cultural integration of the death in societies of contrast. Understanding across the stories of our main characters how they justify an imaginary that supports their tradition and mortuary belief.
