This holiday season, MOCA treats its members to a special screening of Disney•Pixar’s new movie Coco and a special conversation with its Cleveland-born director, Lee Unkrich. Coco tells the story of Miguel, a boy who dreams of becoming an accomplished musician despite his family’s baffling, generations-old ban on music. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead where he meets a charming trickster who accompanies him on an extraordinary journey.

Artist and musician Jacob Koestler will discuss Phil Collins's exhibition my heart's in my hand... currently on view at MOCA Cleveland. Koestler uses photography and video to examine the post-industrial Rust Belt cities in the Great Lakes region. Much of Koestler’s work disrupts the assumptions and stereotypes often associated with these places and their residents through multi-media installations.
