During 1950s, the turbulent years of Argentine politics, the stories of people, the military and the revolutionaries intersect around a mummified corpse. Being not an ordinary corpse, it is capable of inflaming rebellions and it is protected with a great love, respect and devotion, only to be kidnapped by the military regime and kept away for years. This corpse belongs to the beloved first-lady of Argentina, Eva Peron. With three chapters of magical, fairytale-like narrative and an experimental direction, Eva Doesn’t Sleep’s cast includes world famous stars such as Gael García Bernal and Denis Lavant.
