Argentine Quirino Cristiani created the very first animated film in the world, El Apóstol, in 1917.

The film was 70 minutes long and had over 58,000 frames. It was a political satire, and well-received, but a fire unfortunately destroyed the only known copy. Today El Apóstol

is considered a lost film.
