  1.  El Santo de la espada (1970) This
    is a historic-epic Argentinean film directed by Leopoldo Torre Nilson and starring Alfredo Alcón, Evangelina Salazar, Lautaro Murúa and Hector Alterio. Based on Ricardo Rojas's book, published in 1933, El Santo de la espada is the first blockbuster to cover the entire years of San Martín's performance on the South American stage, from 1812 to 1824. The script is by Beatriz Guido and Luis Pico Estrada.
  2.  General and fever (1993) 
    Portrait of General San Martín during his stay in the small town of Saldán in 1814, restoring himself from illness and going through a pause between the headquarters of the Army of the North to which he has just resigned and the Governorate of Cuyo which is about to assume. Directed by Jorge Coscia and starring Rubén Stella, Licia Tizziani, Raúl Brambilla and Jorge Rán, the film proposes a human and intimate approach to the figure of the great patriotic hero.
  3.  Revolution. The crossing of the Andes (2010) 
    The film rediscovers the figure of one of the most important men in Argentine history, General José de San Martín, and reconstructs the most important epic gesture in Latin America's liberation. Starring Rodrigo de la Serna and directed by Leandro Ipiña in 2010, the film — with historical-epic characteristics, recounts the epic made by San Martín when he crossed the Andes Mountains with his army in mid-1817, and the combat that followed after the; s against the Realistic Army in America.
  4.  The Guayaquil Meeting (2016)
