La Santa Muerte

I saw La Santa Muerte this past weekend. It is a documentary that mostly focuses on the devotees who visit the town of Tepito and its rather large alter of the Most Holy Death. She brings hope to the poor, the sick, and those rejected by society. Magazines like Time would have you believe only folks involved in drugs, kidnappings, and homicides worship her. That is not the message I got from this movie. Gael Garcia Bernal narrates.
