ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. A new exhibition bringing to life the music, colours and characters of the Disney-Pixar hit film "Coco" has gone on display in Mexico City's Cineteca Nacional, as the film breaks box office records in Mexico. The film sees a young boy called Miguel during the annual festival of The Day of the Dead enter the Land of the Dead where he joins forces with the mysterious Hector in the underworld. Before and during production, the film makers behind 'Coco' visited Mexican families from cities and rural areas to depict the different ways that the annual event is celebrated among Mexicans. And on display at the exhibition are early sketches of the characters as well as props that formed the basis of the movie's inspiration. The film has already opened in Mexico where it has been crowned the country's highest-grossing movie ever some three weeks after release. 'Coco' goes on release on November 22 in the United States and across much of Europe and Asia on November 23.
