Women In Focus

La Madre Buena

A Mexican mother is surprised and conflicted by her young son’s birthday wish — a Donald Trump piñata. Driven by the love of her only child, she goes against her politics to search for the controversial piñata. Initially unsuccessful, she takes to her motorbike and travels though the heart of Mexico to find a mystic man in a cave. Not only does he have the elusive effigy but he also performs a cleansing ritual to help rid it of evil. Strapped to the back of the motorbike, the Trump piñata is immersed in the Mexican countryside, wind whistling through its hair, racing back towards the big birthday bash.

A film by Sarah Clift.
