La Santa Muerte (Saint Death) + Q&A with Director Eva Aridjis

1 May 2015

In Mexico, a cult is rapidly growing - the cult of Saint Death. This female grim reaper, considered a saint by followers but Satanic by the Catholic Church, is worshipped by people whose lives are filled with danger and violence.

La Santa Muerte examines the origins of the cult and takes us on a tour of the altars, jails, and neighborhoods in Mexico where the saint's most devoted followers can be found.

La Santa Muerte, dir. Eva Aridjis, USA 2007, 84 mins.
