Juan y Eva (Spanish: Juan and Eva) is a 2011 Argentine movie based on the Argentine president Juan Perón and his wife Eva Perón. It features Osmar Nuñez as Juan Perón and Julieta Díaz as Eva Perón. The film is was directed by Paula de Luque. The film controversially received government subsidies for over $3 million, was about the founders of the Justicialist Party which supported Cristina Kirchner's presidential bid, and received wide release, including in most state run cimenas, a month before the 2011 Argentinean presidential election. De Luque subsequently went on to direct "Néstor Kirchner: La película", a documentary of the life of the husband of then president Cristina Fernández, which was widely seen as a propaganda film and also received state subsidies.


The story is based on the first meeting of Juan Perón and Eva Perón, during a fundraising for the recent 1944 San Juan earthquake, and their growing relation. The plot avoids the controversial political topics related to peronism, and focused instead in a romantic plot.[1]



The Argentine president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner promoted the movie during a speech in Merlo.[2]
