The introduction discusses Argentine cinema’s central role in Argentine cultural life during the 1966-1976 period despite a highly volatile political background. I examine the creation of the cinema school as well as the different laws that regulated national film in Argentina in this period. Theories about national cinema by Andrew Higson and John Hill underpinned the analysis of Argentine cinema as well as theories the role of media in nation- building and the dissemination of narratives about nationhood.
