Tótem

Latin Wave

One of the best-reviewed Mexican films in recent times, the Gotham and Independent Spirit Awards–nominated Tótem centers on 7-year-old Sol, who is swept up in a whirlwind of preparations for her father’s birthday party, organized 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.


Organized by the MFAH in association with the creative partner Fundación PROA, Buenos Aires.
Sponsored by Tenaris.

       

Programmed in collaboration with Cinema Tropical.
