Eduardo Montes-Bradley on his film “Evita”

EvitaDirector Eduardo Montes-Bradley talks with Sean McCord about his exploration of the life of Eva Duarte de Perón. Evita, which screens Friday November 4, 2011 at 11:30 am at the Regal Downtown, consists entirely of previously unseen historical footage, reconstructing the life of the former Argentine first lady from an unbiased perspective. The documentary reveals intimate aspects of her early childhood and adolescence leading to her determination to run away to Buenos Aires at age 15, then continues past Evita’s death, ultimately exposing the macabre plot to make Evita’s corpse disappear, and the curious series of events leading to the exchange of cadavers between the underground Peronist Youth and the military regime.
