Santa Evita Premieres Tuesday July 26 on Hulu

Based on Tomás Eloy Martnez’s best-selling novel of the same name, “Santa Evita” tells the intriguing tale of Eva Perón’s embalmed body, which was left unburied for three years while a monument was being built but never finished.

In 1955, a military coup in Argentina overthrew President Juan Domingo Perón and hid Evita’s body for 19 years to prevent it from becoming a symbol against the regime. Before her death, Eva had become a powerful political figure as General Perón’s wife, and her wandering unburied corpse haunted the country’s political arena for over two decades. “Santa Evita” is the story of a corpse with no grave and the legend that was born from it.

Airdate: Tuesday July 26, 2022 on Hulu.
