Film censorship in Argentina (1969-1984)

The Museo del Cine "Pablo Ducrós Hicken" Library and Archive contains documents of testimonies covering a period of turmoil and upheaval in Argentina, including articles, interview documents, press booklets and ephemera from 1969 to 1984-- serving as evidence of state censorship and filmmaker resistance.

This team aims to survey, identify, catalog and make remotely accessible the Museo del Cine Pablo Ducrós Hicken’s clippings collection, selecting those materials related to the Ente de Calificación Cinematográfica (Film Censorship Committee), that was in charge of the revision and approval of scripts, films and releases in Argentina (1969–1984). These documents are newspaper articles, editorials, interviews, postcards and private notes. The project will also seek copyright holders’ authorization for future digitization and open access publishing of the documents.
