Event: Carmen & Lola
Arantxa Echevarría's second feature follows two Roma girls that live in a close-knit community on the outskirts of Madrid. Carmen (Rosy Rodriguez) is 17, engaged, and ready to follow the path her family has already paved for her, while Lola (Zaira Morales) is a soft-spoken, graffiti artist who has big aspirations. When the two meet, both of their lives take an unexpected turn. Carmen & Lola explores queer sexuality in a genuine way, as the protagonists attempt to navigate their feelings and the familial traditions that have been forced upon them. Echevarría effectively conveys the difficulty of trying to balance love, family relationships, religion, and figuring out what it means to be a woman. Despite its colourful scenery and beautiful bittersweet moments, Carmen & Lola will break your heart, but it will also give you hope for new beginnings.
