All the Fires

A misunderstood teenager escapes home to live with a young pyromaniac, questioning his sexuality and dealing with his father's death.


Why watch this film?

All the Fires (Todos los incendios), winner of the Best Actor award at the Morelia Festival 2023, is a unique Mexican coming-of-age film. The plot follows a boy who, frustrated by his father's death and his mother's new romance, expresses himself through pyromania. One day, he decides to escape to visit a friend in another state, and spends a few days that will change his life. Fire is a multifaceted symbol in this story, oscillating between rage, boiling sexuality, self-destruction, and purification. Although sometimes forced in its symbolism, it is a great LGBTQIA+ coming-of-age story.
