Location: Redstone Theater

Co-presented with Cinema Tropical

Dir. Juan Solanas. France/Argentina/Uruguay, 2019, 86 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles. In Argentina, a woman dies every week as the result of an illegal abortion. In 2018, for the seventh time, a motion supporting legal, secure, and free abortion was presented to the National Congress. The project provoked a fierce debate, revealing a society divided more than ever between the pro-life and freedom to choose positions. Through an assemblage of passionate testimonies, Let It Be Law documents the determination of women fighting bravely to secure the right to physical self-determination, and bears witness to their massive mobilization in the streets of Buenos Aires. Juan Solanas’s powerful, inspiring, and necessary documentary, which had its world premiere as an official selection of the Cannes Film Festival, reveals the urgent and vital struggle for the recognition of women’s right.
