Gilda no me Arrepiento de Este Amor (Gilda, I do not Regret This Love) is an 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.
