Walter Mercado – famed Puerto Rican astrologer – was a household name throughout Central and South America and amongst Spanish speaking populations in the USA. Famed for his flamboyant demeanour, his capes, and extravagant dress sense, Walter left the earthly dimension in late 2019 but his legacy lives on in upcoming documentary Mucho Mucho Amor: The Legend of Walter Mercado released on July 8th. Check out the official synopsis below:
Every day for decades, Walter Mercado — the iconic, gender non-conforming astrologer — mesmerized 120 million Latino viewers with his extravagance and positivity. Then he vanished from the public eye. Award-winning documentarians Cristina Costantini (Science Fair) and Kareem Tabsch (The Last Resort) direct MUCHO MUCHO AMOR, produced by Alex Fumero.
The Legend of Walter Mercado debuted at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival in January, and will hit screens worldwide on Netflix next week.
