   M.E.Ch.A. hosted a movie night on November 1, 2022. The club and its members watched The Book of Life. This movie is about Día de Los Muertos: a traditional holiday celebrated as a part of Mexican heritage celebrating and honoring the dead. 

   Celebrating Día de Los Muertos isn’t limited to Mexico, as this holiday is a fusion between pre-Columbian native religious ideas from the Olmec, Aztec, Mayan, and more of leaving offerings for the dead and the post-Columbian Christian ideals of celebrating the dead.

    More than 30 people attended to watch the movie, enjoyed drinks and food, and enlightened themselves upon the traditions of many students at El Modena High School.
