She took her stage name from Rita Hayworth’s titular siren in Charles Vidor’s noir classic, but she was born Miriam Alejandra Bianchi in Buenos Aires in 1961. The cumbia singer fans knew as Gilda gleamed in the spotlight far too briefly, but she had already lived a life as arduous as it was glamorous. I’m Gilda tells her astonishing, inspiring, ultimately tragic story.
Making the leap from documentaries to this sweeping bio-pic, Argentine filmmaker Lorena Muñoz takes us for a thrilling ride along the hard road this legendary vocalist took to make her dreams come true.
This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s HBO Ibero American Competition and Reel Music Film Categories
