Jean Cocteau: Autoportrait d'un Inconnu

Cozarinsky's first-person documentary shows Cocteau recounting his artistic life in post-World War I Paris and highlights his encounters with such figures as Diaghilev, Nijinsky, Picasso, Jean Renoir and Stravinsky.

A compilation of material shot over many years, and featuring moments from various Cocteau films and collaborations such as Melville's Les Enfants Terribles, writer-filmmaker Cozarinsky's evocative 'autoportrait' is one of a series of seminal works on the cinema made by the director.
