SYNOPSIS: La Senora Eva Peron
Nearly half a century after her death, the name "Eva Peron"
has achieved legendary status worldwide and is synonymous with
Argentina and its politics. The weight of her influence as a
woman of power places her along side such figures as Cleopatra,
Spain's Queen Isabella, and England's Queen Elizabeth.
"La Senora Eva Peron," a documentary filmed in Argentina
presents the life of Eva Peron in a factual light.
The Eva Peron story is woven together using intimate
details shared by her closest confidants, including her
confessor. Interviews with political appointees help place
her political charisma in its proper historical context. La Senora Eva Peron also examines her philanthropic work, her influence on other women, and her ability to educate
and inspire the masses. Exclusive interviews, unprecedented access to locations, rare photographs/film clips and period tango music combine to forge an authentic portrait of her extraordinary life.
