Argentine director Sergio Renán’s La tregua – a 1974 film co-written with Aída Bortnik, based on the eponymous novel by Mario Benedetti – was the first Argentine film to be nominated for an Academy Award, for Best Foreign Language Film. The film lost out Federico Fellini’s Amarcord, but has since gained cult status in Argentina.
