Argentina this week is observing the 60th anniversary of the death of Eva ("Evita") Perón, which was on July 26, 1952.
I recently saw this film, Eva Perón (1996), whose screenplay was written by José Pablo Feinmann, a philosopher who has written extensively on Argentine political history, including a multi-volume work on Peronism. It's not as entertaining as Evita, the musical by Andrew Lloyd Weber. But it's one of the better movies I've seen about a politician. It strikes a good balance in giving the audience some understanding of the very complex nature of Peronism. It also does a good job of showing the tragedy and passion as well as the fanaticism of Evita.
Following are Spanish-language reports fro TV Público Argentina on Evita.
