Now in theaters: Carmen & Lola

June 13, 2019

From 13 June Arantxa Echevarria's Carmen & Lola will be screened in film theaters.

Carmen lives in a Roma community on the outskirts of Madrid. She is engaged and would never question the standards and values imposed by the deeply religious community. She is destined to live the life of many generations of women before her: getting married, giving birth to as many children as possible, and spending the rest of her life cleaning and cooking. But then she meets the idiosyncratic Lola, a graffiti artist who wants to study, loves girls and who, in her own way, opposes the imposed rules within the Roma community. The two fall in love, with the result that they have to find their way between their love, family, religion and what it means to be a woman.
