Description:
  Exotic feathers, high heels, sequins, statuesque bodies, jewels, champagne: these are the most widespread memories of the glamorous world of Mexico’s showgirls, now that those cabarets – where they reined supreme as queens of the night – no longer exist.

Beauties of the Night begins forty years after the show ended. The relentless passing of time, lost youth, the mirage of fame, the pursuit of happiness are realities and challenges that these women have embraced with strength and perseverance to finding their own way and reinventing themselves maintaining their independence and freedom. From naked bodies to souls laid bare, this film offers an unvarnished portrait of five women who lasted through the night and emerged to new possibilities of beauty. “Beauties of the Night”is an universally inspirational film, it’s a celebration of life and of the female voice.

Director, María José Cuevas spent eight years developing and filming “Beauties of the Night”, creating an intimate work based on friendship, trust and complicity as she explores the lives and worlds of her protagonists who were some of the biggest stars of varieties in the seventies and eighties in Mexico. This film gives us insight not only into the world of showgirls, but most important into life itself; the successes and failures of women’s power obtained through beauty and sensuality and the dignity of their ageing.

It addresses both the taboo and struggle for these ageing stars, each one of them finding their own way. Depictions of love, strength, acceptance, and perseverance help them through the hard times.
