Traven (The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) and cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa combined to produce this gentle, moving fable on human morality.

On the Day of the Dead, he meets Death, disguised as another peasant, who trades him the power to cure the dying for a portion of turkey. Macario’s fame spreads around the country, and he soon has a flourishing business until a local doctor decides to call in the Inquisition. Copies: 1 (DVD) Length: 91 minutes
