Argentine Cinema and National Identity (1966-1976)

I trace the development of Güemes’ bio-pic from its pre-production to its release. Particular attention is paid to its popular and critical reception. I analyse the film as a historical biopic and epic that engaged with the concerns among Argentines of the early 1970s. I emphasise Güemes’ representation as a martyred hero along with the role of women in the independence process.
