Museo del Cine photos 1

Just a handful of images to begin with.  These give a good indication of the richness of the collections within the Museo del Cine de Buenos Aires. 

The door to one of several film storage rooms on the 2˚ piso del museo.

Above, 2 frames from the print of the negative in the can below. Which turns out to be from 1923, not '17.

Below: Found in the room full of projectors and cameras. A boxful of 9.5mm cartridges. The titles written on the leaders indicate most of the films are educational and industrial documentaries.

A reminder of how very south Argentina lies.
