Following the latest advice from the Victorian Government ACMI remains temporarily closed. Unfortunately, the 4 Aug session for Jean Cocteau: Autoportrait D'un Inconnu will be postponed.
We look forward to welcoming you back to ACMI soon. Look after yourself, and each other.
Edgardo 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 featuring moments from various Cocteau films and collaborations such as Les enfants terribles, Argentinian writer-filmmaker Cozarinsky’s evocative “autoportrait” is one of a series of seminal works on the cinema made by the director.
