Lot Essay

The film opens with a spectacular, action-packed sequence centred on Mexico City’s Day of the Dead celebration. Oscar-winning production designer, Dennis Gassner, created his own version of the festival which was shot over several days in and around Zócalo Square, Plaza Tolsa and the Centro Historico neighbourhood in March 2015 with over 1,500 extras. Several of these three-wheel bikes festooned with hand-made papier-mâché skeletons, toy guitars, tin and paper decorations added atmosphere to the parade.

The seller of this lot has agreed to donate their entire proceeds of the sale of this lot, if sold, to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, a registered UK charity. The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art is registered in England and Wales with registered charity number 312819.
