Totem

Winner of the Golden Bear in 2023 at Berlin, director Lila Avilés’ breakout is a touching drama seen through the eyes of a child, that was one of the best-reviewed films of the year.


In a bustling Mexican household, seven-year-old Sol is swept up in a whirlwind of preparations for the birthday party for her father, Tona, led by her mother, aunts and other relatives. As the day goes on, building to an event both anticipated and dreaded, Sol begins to understand the gravity of the celebration this year and watches as her family does the same. This poignant and emotionally expansive film from Avilés cements her skill at directing dynamic ensemble performances in her stunning sophomore effort.
