Cristina Constantini and Miami's own Kareem Tabsch have crafted one of the most talked-about documentaries of the year.
Extravagant Puerto Rican astrologer legend Walter Mercado charmed the world for over 30 years with his televised horoscopes. Equal parts Oprah, Liberace, and Mr. Rogers, Walter was a celebrated daily part of Latin culture—until one day in 2007 he mysteriously disappeared from the media landscape. Over a decade later, the filmmakers find Walter and invite us into his home and interior world as he prepares to restore his legacy in the public eye. The film explores Walter's complex story from the rural sugarcane fields of Puerto Rico to international astrology superstardom, rising above all doubters with a message of love and hope.
Mucho Mucho Amor is a love letter to Walter Mercado. The filmmakers, who grew up watching him with their abuelitos, craft a film with levity and a playful spirit. Light-years ahead of his time, Walter has become a nostalgic cult icon of self-expression and positivity.
