Perón and Argentine Cinema, 1943-1955

My project will examine Argentine cinema between 1943, when a coup brought Perón to power, and 1955, when he was removed from office. It will study cases of censorship and of blacklistings, identifying the political and personal motives behind them, and will evaluate the impact of labor legislation on filmmaking. It will also trace new aesthetic trends in films, such as a growing interest in psychological cinema and an emulation of neorealism, and will identify methods directors used to circumvent government resistance to these trends. Finally, it will analyze, in the context of Perón’s government’s policies, the transformation of the ways movies portray labor, education, poverty, wealth, and various social groups, including women and blacks.
