"Cine y Propaganda" deals with documentary film produced by the Argentine state between the 1930s and 1950s. centered on a corpus made up of short and medium-length films some cases were made by the government and, in others, I have entrusted the realization to third party with for the purpose of disseminating state ideas and policies and propagate educational and scientific content.
The period covered is large. It ranges from governments conservatives (Agustin P. Justo, Roberto M. Ortiz, Ramon S. Castillo), until the GOU military coup and the two presidencies of Juan Domingo Peron. It also coincides with the development of the ci fictional industrial ne, one of the most prolific and vigorous moments of Argentine cinematography.
However, unlike what happened with fiction cinema, the documentary of this period was scarcely studied. What is curious if we consider the amount of material made, the gravitation that the films had in the society of their time and the level of pregnant than their voices and images reached in the audiovisual memory of later generations.
