Carmen & Lola
Carmen lives in a thriving Roma community in the suburbs of Madrid. Like every other woman she has ever met, she is destined to be married to a boy of her parents’ choosing.
But when Lola, a fellow Roma girl with dreams of going to university and succeeding on her own terms, catches her eye at the local market, everything changes - with explosive results.
Heaving with the passion and determination of a love denied, Arantxa Echevarría’s ‘Carmen & Lola’ thrusts us into the customs, music and revelry of Romani culture, as seen through the eyes of two young women driven by their desire to live as one.
