The 21st Rewrite Podcast

Coco (2017)

February 4, 2019

After a trip to Oaxaca, there was only one story that the 21st Rewrite (William Coldwell and Alan Vazquez) wanted to talk about, and that was 'Coco'! An inspirational tale for young people following their dreams, and a celebration of the culture, music and traditions of Mexico, there was plenty to talk about with this screenplay. This episode covers some of the historical and current events that helped shape the portrayal of the Rivera family and the Day of the Dead celebrations in the town of Santa Cecilia, as well as the mythological motifs that are apparent throughout the film.
