Description

The daughter of street vendors eking out a living on the outskirts of Madrid, lively bombshell Carmen would never think to question the norms of her deeply religious, and highly marginalized, Gypsy community. Hemmed in by both a suffocating local patriarchy and larger anti-Roma prejudice, her life is shaping up to be one of fast marriage, young motherhood, and the remainder of her years spent cleaning house and cooking meals—maybe even a small hairdressing job on the side. But when she unexpectedly crosses paths with thoughtful, rebellious graffiti artist Lola, who is quietly pushing against the suffocating restrictions of their shared Roma neighborhood, the pair find themselves caught between the electricity of first love and the harsh realities of navigating two hostile worlds, leading to a powerful moment of reckoning in this smart, lively and sexy debut feature from writer/director Arantxa Echevarria.

Sinopsis

Carmen es la vivaz y hermosa hija de vendedores callejeros que se ganan la vida en los extramuros de Madrid. Ella nunca pensaría en cuestionar las normas de su profundamente religiosa y altamente marginada comunidad gitana. Cercada tanto por un sofocante patriarcado local como por el generalizado prejuicio anti gitanos o Roma como los llaman en España, su vida parece dirigirse hacia un matrimonio rápido, una maternidad joven, pasar el resto de sus años limpiando y cocinando en su hogar -- quizás con un pequeño trabajo como estilista como profesión. Pero cuando su camino inesperadamente se cruza con el de la reflexiva y rebelde artista de grafitis Lola, quien sigilosamente puja contra las sofocantes restricciones de comunidad, la pareja se encuentra atrapada entre la electricidad del primer amor y la dura realidad de navegar dos mundos hostiles, llevándolas a un punto de inflexión en sus vidas. Esta historia inteligente, vivaz y sexy, de la escritora y directora Arantxa Echevarria obtuvo el Premio Goya a la Mejor Película Opera Prima.
