ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Veteran filmmaker Nancy Savoca is donating her personal collection of papers to the University of Michigan Library.

The Ann Arbor school says the collection spans Savoca’s more than 25 years as a director, producer and screenwriter. It will go to the school’s Screen Arts Mavericks & Makers collection.

The Screen Arts Mavericks & Makers archive includes papers from Orson Welles, Robert Altman, Alan Rudolph, John Sayles and Ira Deutchman.

Savoca has worked with her husband and filmmaking partner, Rich Guay, for more than 25 years.

The University of Michigan says she won the grand jury prize at the inaugural 1989 Sundance Film Festival with her screenwriting and directing debut of the independent film “True Love.”
