The animated feature is a gorgeous love letter to Mexico and its Day of the Dead holiday, and premiered earlier this month at a film festival in Mexico.

And in Mexico City — as part of actual Day of the Dead festivities over the past few weeks — the movie's marketing campaign includes a series of 30 gorgeous murals.

These murals were created by 10 artists from a local art collective known as TUYI, and are placed around the city in 13 locations.

And the campaign is part of a paint company's larger initiative to use art for reclaiming forgotten spaces and strengthening the social fabric.

You can see all of the murals, as well as a map of their locations, on the company's Spanish-language site, here.
