Just a quick update to announce that the new DVD Aldo Tambellini: Cathodic Works 1966-1976 is now available for viewing at the Fine Arts Library.  View the record in HOLLIS for more info.

Last month four pallets of film arrived from Los Angeles, comprising one of our newest collections, The Fundacion Cinemateca Argentina Collection

a few of the boxes from The Fundacion Cinemateca Argentina Collection

We have a group of staff and interns busy at work processing and cataloging the films, and so far it appears that most items are 35mm and 16mm projection prints of Argentinian films from the 1950s-1980s.  There is also a smaller amount of picture negative and other pre-print material, and most everything is Spanish language.  This is an exciting collection that greatly enhances our holdings in South American cinema.  Once processing is complete, we’ll post a finding aid to OASIS with a list of titles and the films will be available for research use.  In the meantime, here are a few of the titles we uncovered over the past few weeks:
