LGBTQ+ History Month film screening: Carmen and Lola
‘Tertulia de Literatura y Cine’ is a Spanish literary and film circle at the University of York, organised by María Muradás-Taylor (Lecturer in Spanish) at the Department of Language and Linguistic Science. In celebration of LGBT+ History Month, Tertulia presents a film screening of 'Carmen and Lola.'
Synopsis: 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.
But one day she meets Lola, an uncommon gypsy who dreams about going to university, draws bird graffiti and likes girls. Carmen quickly develops a complicity with Lola and they discover a world that, inevitably, leads them to be rejected by their families.
Listen to the Cannes 2018 film review of ‘Carmen and Lola’ via the Hollywood Reporter.
The film will be shown in Spanish.
