Xilitla, Mexico: where Day of the Dead meets carnival

Forget what you’ve seen in James Bond films, the best town for this November festival is Xilitla, amid the hills and waterfalls of the eastern Sierra Gorda‘Where exactly are you taking us?” my friend asked. Stars sparkled over black mountains as we drove along steep, dark roads into the lush Sierra Gorda of eastern Mexico. High in these hills lie the ancestral lands of the Huastec people, with villages, coffee farms, rugged slopes and powerful waterfalls. Centuries-old traditions flourish here, and we had come to experience one in particular.In the colonial town of Xilitla, in San Luís Potosí state, where clouds swaddle mountain tops and citrus trees abound, each October the locals prepare the town’s whitewashed square for Xantolo (pronounced shantolow), the local version of Day of the Dead.

Sam Rockwell: ‘Playing hicks is not where I come from, but they keep throwing me on a horse’

The actor has spent years playing ‘racists and rednecks’ and his latest role as a bigoted cop is already attracting awards buzz. He talks about his empathy with George W Bush and why Hollywood is not in crisisAt a time when Hollywood is tackling the predatory sexuality on which the entire movie industry appears to be built, some of its favourite actors have made a film about the same issues, but set in a far less prestigious town. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won the top prize at the Toronto international film festival for its depiction of a mother, played by Frances McDormand, fighting to bring her teenage daughter’s rapist and killer to justice in a rural backwater.

Rebecca Warren review – a creepy comic carnival on the edge of Cornwall

Tate St Ives Warren’s sculptures are sensile, tactile and frequently terrific. But they seem strangely unable to fill the Cornish gallery’s uplifting new modernist extensionThe sea and sky are the first rivals any artist exhibiting at Tate St Ives has to reckon with. A big, bold view of both fills its beach-facing galleries. In the spectacular new concrete-roofed extension that opens this week, there are no views, just lots of bright natural light streaming in from above. Then again, instead of views, there are the works of all the 20th-century artists who settled in Cornwall and created the strand of British modernism that led to this museum’s existence.The airy paintings of Peter Lanyon and the organically orotund casts and carvings of Barbara Hepworth have never looked better than they do in the reborn Tate St Ives. Even for a sceptic like me, who doesn’t believe British abstract art ever rivalled the likes of Mark Rothko or Jackson Pollock, the union of this art with the seascapes that inspired it is compelling.
