Program note

In Argentina, a woman dies every week due to clandestine abortion. In 2018, a bill supporting free, safe and legal abortion is introduced to the National Congress, sparking an intense debate in Argentinian society. Que Sea Ley is a documentary that shows the ongoing struggle to legalize abortion in Argentina. Without even the slightest attempt to maintain an objective gaze in this conflict between the fetuses’ right to life and women’s right to make decisions about her reproductive health, Juan SOLANAS simply takes one side. As a result, the film is vivid, passionate, and powerful. Women activists with colorfully painted faces and armed with confident smiles shout their slogans, sing, and march. On the other side of these exciting protests rallies that seem more like festivals loom the many corpses of women who lost their lives to illegal abortion. SOLANAS’s camera captures the passion and excitement of the protesters with a keen and raw gaze in this film, and the title of this film Que Sea Ley, meaning “Let the [abortion bill] be law,” becomes a strong slogan. The film was presented at a Special Screening at the Cannes Film Festival (KANG Sowon)
