COCO Screening and Conversation with Director Lee Unkrich
This holiday season, MOCA invites you 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.
Lee Unkrich directed Coco. An Academy Award®-winning director at Pixar Animation Studios and the vice president, editorial & layout, Unkrich also co-directed Finding Nemo, Disney•Pixar’s first-ever Oscar® winner for Best Animated Feature, and directed the critically-acclaimed box office hit, Toy Story 3, which also won the Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature. Unkrich grew up in Chagrin Falls and now lives in Marin County, CA with his wife and three children.
