Fundación Cinemateca Argentina Collection

In 2010, the Harvard Film Archive received a donation of a large collection of Argentenian feature films and archival ephemera from the Fundación Cinemateca Argentina. Over fifty video and film works comprise this collection, with most of the material being 35mm or 16mm projection prints from the 1950s through the 1980s, the majority in Spanish. Included in this collection are films from all corners of the canon, such as the romance Stella (1943) by Benito Perojo, Luis Bayón Herrera's musical Cándida (1939), the period crime drama Asesinato en el Senado de la Nacion (1984) by Juan José Jusid, and the cult classic La Mary (1974) by Daniel Tinayre.

A selection of titles in the collection is available via HOLLIS.
