Tótem

Lila Avilés’ radiant follow-up to her debut, THE CHAMBERMAID, TÓTEM follows 7-year-old Sol helping her aunts prepare for her father’s surprise birthday party, as the house grows increasingly boisterous and her dad’s absence from the festivities increasingly mysterious.

“There isn’t a false note in the tender Mexican drama TÓTEM… With intricate staging, lapidary camerawork and an expressionistically warm palette — along with charming appearances from the natural world — the writer-director Lila Avilés creates a richly textured, deeply compassionate portrait of a family that’s falling apart as one of the youngest members comes into consciousness. TÓTEM is only Avilés’ second feature…but it’s also one of the finest movies you’ll see this year.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.

Presented by RoxCine.
