Las Vegas is home to a very diverse Hispanic population with many variations in traditions and celebrations.  The Winchester Cultural Center has become a place for these diverse communities to come together and share their ways of celebrating Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in a multi-day festival that includes altars, traditional poetry (“calaveras”), dance, foodways, and costume.  Film maker Emire Stitt worked with the Nevada Arts Council and with the Winchester Cultural Center on the concept and execution of this film.
