FILM TITLE: Let it Be Low 

DIRECTOR: Juan Solanas 

COUNTRY: Argentina, France, Uruguay

2019 – 85 min – Spanish

Filmed on the eve of an important vote in the Argentine parliament on a law designed to legalize abortion, Let It Be Law (Que Sea Ley) shows the impressive green wave of pro-choice supporters fighting for women’s right to abortion. Almost all of them are young women wearing big smiles of confidence; some protesting in Handmaid’s Tale bonnets, others with colorfully painted faces.

Director Juan Solanas emphasizes the crowds of demonstrators as a cheerful counterweight to the many tragic cases of women who died because of illegal abortions or because they were denied treatment in hospitals after miscarriages.
