This presentation is about the discovery of two Argentinian films considered long lost. In 1902 Eugenio Cardini bought a Cinématographe Lumière in France, with which he shot some of the first films ever made in South America. None of these films were preserved in their original format, and one of them was considered, until now, completely lost. In 2020 two of these films, in the original Lumiere format, were discovered in Lodz, Poland. After some research we managed to reconstruct these reels’ odyssey: from Buenos Aires to London, then to Paris, to Germany and finally to Poland. A digitization and restoration project will make these films available for the public.
