The Audiovisual Archive has signed an Agreement of Preservation of its documental base with the Asociación Proyectos Culturales para el Desarrollo (Cultural Projects for Development Association). This agreement has the support of more than 50 Argentinean writers.
Since this agreement, it is guaranteed a security copy of all the documents produced and gathered by the Buenos Aires Audiovisual Archive, in order to keep and preserve them.
We remember this great writer, author of the novel “Rayuela” and the tale books “Bestiario” and “Final de juego”, among others great works, who passed away on February 12th, 1984, in Paris (France), though a recording from 1982, in which he speaks about writers and literature, and that was broadcasted, the day he died, by ATC (now Canal 7).
To know more about his life and work, you can also enjoy at the Audiovisual Archive a fragment of the long interview done by TVE (Televisión Española, 1977), in which Cortázar reveals details on the creative process of his tales and his writing habits, and delight yourself listening to his voice narrating “Viajes”, a fragment of his book “Historias de Cronopios y de Famas”.
