Argentine cumbia star biopic about the popular tropical music singer who reached unimaginable fame that ended with unimaginable tragedy.
This Latin American hit movie is inspired by singer Míriam Alejandra Bianchi, a Buenos Aires-born kindergarden teacher who gave up everything to achieve her dream of becoming a singer superstar. Gilda, however, didn’t fit in with the female musical icons of her time who were mostly sex objects.
She composes and shows her own repertoire as an author and speaks to other women about their rights, endurances and about using their own voices for the first time in Argentina.
Oreiro provides her own vocals to the late singer’s hits in the film. From the same producers as Clandestine Childhood which went on to become Argentina’s foreign-language Oscar entry.
