Lo que dirán (Some Might Say)

Nila Núñez Urgell

Lo que dirán (Nila Núñez Urgell)
L'Alternativa Parallel / Panorama / Lo que dirán


"Not all documentaries that simply observe manage to achieve a transcendental state. Lo que dirán is one of those that does. Present-day events become deeply symbolic in a film that acts as an allegory of a social divide. Two friends with very different visions of the relationship between identity and personal appearance meet to talk about a garment that has sparked great controversy in the West: the hijab.” (Josep Maria Català Domènech)
