UN IMPORTANTE PREESTRENO (2016)

With English subtitles available.

This documentary by Santiago Calori deals with film exhibitions in Buenos Aires from the fifties up until the end of the 80s when the business began to change until it vanished. It includes a great passage dealing about the censorship that they faced between 1967 to 1984, the video revolution and many other things. Exhibitors, some historians and the late Fabio Manes (in his final interview before his death) appear among other people.

I managed to experience these exhibition and saw its decadence until they completely vanished. The title is based, as it is explained in the movie, in the way Salvador Sammaritano managed to show censored movies when censorship was still in full force.
