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 Lila Aviles (The Chambermaid) cements her skill at directing dynamic, ensemble performances in her stunning sophomore effort. Acclaimed at numerous film festivals including Berlin, Telluride, San Sebastian, and BFI London, Tótem is Mexico’s official Academy Awards submission and received a Gotham Award nomination for Best International Feature.
