EL DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS (THE DAY OF THE DEAD), James Keeshen, director, animation, 22 minutes (USA). The film tells the story of how Max, a small child living in LA, finds out the true meaning of El Día de Los Muertos and reconnects with his Latino heritage thanks to his Mexican grandmother Lucía. On Halloween night, Max and his friends visit Grandma Lucía's house, where she tells them about the celebration of the Day of The Dead and the Aztec cultural traditions. Lucía had set up an ofrenda in her living-room to honor her recently deceased husband, Dionisio. She tells the children the story about Grandpa's beloved pet iguana, Pancho, who was buried in the family cemetery back in Mexico. Her fantastic stories bring Max closer to the Latino cultural traditions, and ultimately helps him to understand the importance of El Día de Los Muertos.




    KEY DOCUMENTS FOR JAMES KEESHEN PRODUCTIONS

    James "Jim" Keeshen is a full-time professor of Animation at Santa Monica College's Academy of Entertainment and Technology (AET). Keeshen allegedly made AET into his own digital playground, using entertainment industry partners, faculty and students for his various personal projects (see list on left) and for his own financial gain under his company, Jim Keeshen Productions. He obtained federal and district taxpayers' dollars through secret consultant contracts with SMC under the fictitious names Animatics and Studio Animatics.

    While at SMC, Keeshen allegedly infringed on copyrights, filed falsified tax information to the IRS, and used AET industry partners to secure a questionable sabbatical with Klasky Csupo as well as a Colgate 3D commercial with Rhythm & Hues, providing both companies with kickbacks in the process.
