Actress, seductress, political powerhouse and cultural icon of Argentina and the world, the life and legend of María Eva Duarte de Perón, or Evita, as she came to be known, endures to this day. Yet Evita, a woman of poor origins who rose to become the first lady of Argentina, was as hated by the upperclass of her country as she was loved by the poor masses whose cause she championed.


Featuring rare film materials and interviews with Eva’s personal acquaintances, critics and historians, a balanced and finally complete picture emerges of Evita’s life, death, and the history of postwar Argentina. Interspersed with this fascinating portrait of an ambitious woman's rise to power is the bizarre story of her embalmed corpse, illustrating, decades after her death in 1952, the continuing power of her life.


"The perpetual allure of Eva Duarte Peron and her myth and mystery... This documentary illuminates the course of her extremely dramatic life."- All Movie Guide


"Valuable testimony from people who had contact with this legend of Argentinan history."
- International Festival of New Latin American Cinema
