Day of the Dead in Janitzio features one of the most magnificent rituals of the rich Mexican culture. This time the celebration takes place in Janitzio, a magical little island in the State of Michoacan, perhaps the single most famous place for witnessing the Day of the Dead commemoration.
The people of Janitzio, the famous fishermen with butterfly nets, have conserved the authenticity of their customs, their rituals, their dances and their way of dressing. Through this program you will see their vibrant dances, their typical food being prepared, rituals by the fishermen that take place in the lake, and of course the mystic and spiritual moment in the tombs in which the living pay their respects to their dead loved ones as a grand celebration of life! “Sole Source”
This is a respectful, insider’s view of the authentic Day of the Dead celebration.

“I recently purchased your video (Janitzio) . Mil gracias!
The quality of the writing and the photography was excellent!
My students and I viewed the film this past Friday as an introduction to this fiesta, and they thought it was wonderful and insightful. Please keep producing/directing/writing videos.
Once again, thank you for the wonderful quality videos you prepare for those of us who try to bring as much of your world in Mexico to our students.”
