Carmen y Lola
World premiere, Film in competition for the Caméra d'Or Award
Carmen lives in a gypsy community in the suburbs of Madrid. Like every other woman she has ever met, she is destined to live a life that is repeated generation after generation: getting married and raising as many children as possible.

Carmen quickly develops a complicity with Lola and they discover a world that, inevitably, leads them to be rejected by their families.
