Pelis argentinas y uruguayas que he visto/ Argentine/Uruguayan films I've seen

About 2 years ago I began trying to see as many Argentine films as possible while living in the US. I research new titles via TV Pública Argentina, obtain as many DVDs as I can, and see as many movies as possible during annual vacations/ study trips in Buenos Aires. If anyone has suggestions for obtaining more obscure films on DVD for Zone 1, please let me know!

Hace 2 años, empecé tratando de ver tantas películas argentinas como sea posible mientras que vivir en EE.UU. Aprendo sobre de pelis nuevas usando TV Pública Argentina, compro tantos DVDs como sea posible acá, y veo pelis durante vacaciones anuales en Bs As. Si alguien tenga sugerencias para obtener DVDs formateados para la zona 1, por favor dejame un comentario – ¡gracias!
