During a normal working day, José Guadalupe Posada looks through the window at politicians, drunks, wives, children and musicians. Although the engraving press starts to work, this is not a normal day: his engravings come to life as nightfall descends and the door opens loudly. His prints want to take him away.
* The title of the short film makes reference to Mexican artist and illustrator José Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913) whose satirical illustrations, iconic drawings and engravings of calaveras (skulls) have become associated with the Day of the Dead holiday. Give Me Posada, literally ?Give me lodging,? is also the chant sung during the Posadas, a nine-day celebration and procession that takes place before Christmas.
