Alternative Valentine's: CARMEN Y LOLA

The perfect Alternative Valentine’s plan for those who believe in a wider idea of love. 

Proud to present the Scottish Premiere of Arantxa Echevarria's Carmen Y Lola, one of the hottest films in the festival circuit just now. A true love story between two young gypsy women in an environment where homosexuality is taboo. 

The film scooped 8 nominations at the Goya Awards (Spanish BAFTAs) and received wide acclaim in Cannes, Palm Springs, Quebec & BFI’s London Film Festival. 

A profoundly honest first work by Arantxa Echevarria, the director works with nonprofessional actors to remind us what love is really about. 

“Echevarría flings open the final closet that needs airing out in the country by broaching the subject of lesbianism in the Gypsy community."(Cineuropa)
