Watch movies from Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. Discuss them.
Challenge runs from March 1, 2023 to March 31, 2023 in your local time zone.
- Each feature film (over 40 minutes) counts as one entry.
- 80 minutes of short films or miniseries/TV episodes counts as one entry.
- Please include year of release when listing your viewings.
- Do not edit your posts to add new watches, just create a new one.
- Try to give an indication of how much you liked/disliked your watchings (reviews, comments, ratings,...)
- Rewatches are allowed and are good for the soul.
- Please indicate each film's country when listing your viewings otherwise your score will NOT be included in the leaderboard.
For films to qualify for this Challenge, they need to have an eligible country listed as a production country on the film's IMDb page. If you've seen something that you strongly believe should be eligible and isn't, please submit a correction to IMDb and you can include the film as soon as IMDb accepts your correction. Films by ex-pat directors (e.g. Hector Babenco's Ironweed) are not eligible unless they meet the IMDb country listing requirement.
A number of Ar/Br/Py/Uy films are co-productions with non-eligible countries. Please use some common sense to determine whether these films really represent Ar/Br/Py/Uy cinema.
