While this week (semana santa) isn’t really shown within the film itself, though it is similar and can relate to/ or give a background to the meaning of “tiempo santo” (holy time) . La semana santa otherwise known as the holy week is the week leading up to Jesus’ death as well as his resurrection.This week is a ritual that Catholics take very seriously every year. During this time , while it is a time of celebration , it is also a time of seriousness . It is extremely frowned upon to do any sinning at all, in fact in very strict parts no running or meat eating is not allowed. Then, when Jesus dies (on good friday) , a big parade and mass/church service is put on as a sense of mourning for our dead jesus, and from good Friday until Jesus’s resurrection on Easter Sunday people are mourning… but in Madeinusa things are a little different with tiempo santo.
