1960 Trip to South America – Part 2

I recently found some 8 mm film of my grandparents' trip to South America. I assumed it was strictly to visit family in Córdoba, Argentina, but there is film footage of Lima, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Rio and Brasilia. With the generous help of my father I have been able to digitize the film reels. I hope you find them as fascinating as I do.

This post contains videos for Buenos Aires, Rio and Brasilia. The links for each video are below the screenshot.


  1. Thanks so much for posting your grandparent's films from 1960 - I love the Brasilia footage and am using it in a blog post about the city's inauguration in 1960. Warm regards from Canada, Michael

  2. Dear JF de Buren. I'm a Brazilian producer and audiovisual research. I'd like to speak to you reagarding the amazing footages you have about Rio de Janeiro. Please, could you send me a e-mail to my personal adress:

    Thank you very much
    Kind regards

    Antonio Venancio
