The papers include the working files of Argentine filmmaker, producer, screenwriter, novelist, critic, theater director, and playwright Edgardo Cozarinsky.
A large portion of the papers include scripts, shooting schedules, printed press, on set photographic stills, subtitle translation texts, audiovisual materials, general reference, and accounting files pertaining to Cozarinsky's film work. Drafts and printed materials of his theater productions and writing publications are present as well. Correspondence from various friends and collaborators including Néstor Almendros, Adolfo Bioy Casares, Guillermo Cabrera Infante, Ronald Christ, Frances Korn, Silvina and Victoria Ocampo, Alejandra Pizarnik, Manuel Puig, Severo Sarduy, Susan Sontag, and Julián Ríos, among other individuals, is also present. Other materials include photographs; personal items such as address books, notebooks, planners; printed and ephemeral matter from film festivals; articles and interviews about Cozarinsky; and a newspaper and magazine research collection of varying subject matter that includes articles about Argentine culture, film history, and Jorge Luis Borges. Additional materials consist of printed matter, including press clippings, magazines, brochures and ephemera. It also includes Cozarinsky's drafts, "The Flight" and "Little Odessa", letters, postcards, invitations, and a diary. Also included are audiovisual materials related primarily to Cozarinsky's work.
When possible, Cozarinsky's original folder titles were maintained which demonstrate his use of French, Spanish, and English.
