"Que sea ley" - Synopsis

Let it be law places us in the palpitating center of the protests called “Marea Verde”, a movement that prompted thousands of women to take the streets and demand the decriminalization of abortion in Argentina. The film records the songs, vigil nights, batucadas, and bonfires that have inspired so many other feminist collective experiences throughout Latin America, under the iconic green scarf. The documentary highlights the unavoidable link between the political and the personal. Massive gatherings in public spaces and heated parliamentary debates are blended with testimonies from women who narrate the consequences of clandestine abortion. Solanas' documentary challenges us to actively participate in a debate that transcends borders, beliefs and social classes, at a time when civil rights are threatened in various parts of the world.
