Coco (2017)

One of the most visually stunning animated movies ever made, Coco follows the story of a young boy named Miguel who wants desperately to be a famous musician despite his family's ban on music. Eventually, he finds himself in the land of the dead, where adventure and self-discovery ensue. It's a beautiful movie about familial ties, Mexican culture, and what it really means to idolize someone.

This Saturday at 3PM EST, Popdust will be hosting our first ever livestreamed music festival.

Check out the show on Facebook Live (RSVP here!), grab a free ticket on Eventbrite, or register on Zoom.
