How we built the list

The initial  list was created by searching Argentina as Country of Origin and Spanish language (http://www.imdb.com/search/title?countries=ar&languages=es&sort=num_votes).  Then, we had to refine the list as many movies are coproduced between countries or directors and actors are mostly from other nationalities.

The criteria used to determine the “nationality” of a movie are:

  • Country of origin (production).
  • Language (in our case Spanish).
  • Nationality of the director and majority of the cast.
  • Topic

Some movies are still difficult to classify. That is the case of “The Motorcycle Diaries”: coproduction between Argentina,  USA, Chile, Peru, Brazil, UK, Germany  and France; directed by Walter Salles (Brazil); main role played by Gabriel Garcia Bernal (Mexico). However, most of the cast is from Argentina  and the movie tells the story of a motorcycle trip from Argentina to Peru, undertaken in 1952 by Ernesto Guevara de la Serna (Argentina) and his friend Alberto Granado (Argentina).
