About the movie: Based on the novel of the same name by mysterious writer B. Traven, Macario is a drama that takes place in a Day of the Death in Taxco at the colonial era. An non-temporal and deeply human story that blends tradition, history & fantasy. Macario was the first Mexican Film to be nominated for an Academy OSCAR Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and now is a classic iconic Mexican film that remains in memories and reverberates in representations of cultural heritages beyond borders such as the Day of the Death.
