November 17, 2017•56 min
With the release of Coco, Disney Pixar's film about the Day of the Dead, Latino USA takes a look back at Disney's relationship with Latin America. We start in the 1940s when Walt Disney and a group of animators were deployed by the U.S. government to Latin America in efforts to curb Nazi influence there. Then we hear from a Chilean writer who wrote a book called "How to Read Donald Duck" critiquing Disney comics' American imperialism in the 1070's. His book would later be burned in Chile. And finally, we talk with the directors of Coco, Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina.
