    • Synopsis
    • In Argentina, a 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 of Argentina. 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.
      Let It Be Law marks Juan Solanas’ return to Cannes Official Selection– a powerful, militant and necessary documentary revealing the urgent and vital struggle for the recognition of women’s rights.
