Argentine Cinema and National Identity (1966-1976)

Liverpool University Press

This chapter is dedicated to surveying the development, shooting, and reception of Argentina’s national epic poem, Martín Fierro for the silver screen spearheaded by Leopoldo Torre Nilsson. I also analyze this film, contrasting it with Westerns and highlighting its relevance to nation-building in the late 1960s.

Keywords:   Martín Fierro, Leopoldo Torre Nilsson, Alfredo Alcón, gauchesque, frontier
