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.
