In Argentina, one woman dies every week as the result of illegal abortions. 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. The film marks Juan Solanas’ return to Cannes Official Selection - a powerful, militant and necessary documentary revealing the urgent vital, struggle for the recognition of women’s rights.
