CARMEN & LOLA
Winner of the Best New Director Award at this year's Goya Awards, Arantxa Echevarría's powerful debut is a modern-day "Romeo and Juliet," focused on two star-crossed teens from Madrid's marginalized Roma community. Carmen (Rosy Rodríguez), the daughter of street vendors living on the outskirts of Madrid, is busy preparing for her upcoming wedding, driven by her parents to settle down and look forward to a life in the traditional role of wife and mother. But when she crosses paths with Lola (Zaira Romero), an ambitious, rebellious graffiti artist who refuses to confirm to their community's strict patriarchal norms, the pair find themselves caught in the throes of first love and between two seemingly irreconcilable worlds. DIR/SCR/PROD Arantxa Echevarría; PROD Pilar Sánchez Díaz. Spain, 2018, color, 103 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
Presented in collaboration with SPAIN arts & culture as part of Mujeres de Cine, an initiative created to showcase Spanish films by women filmmakers.
