William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible
Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
Rich in visual imagery and music, this program provides an in-depth meeting with the artist William Kentridge, as he stages "The Nose" for The Metropolitan Opera. Kentridge's production of this Shostakovich opera, based on a Gogol story, premiered in March 2010. The film follows Kentridge on an international journey -- from Paris to Sydney, from Johannesburg to New York -- as he works on "The Nose" and its "satellite pieces." The film offers a rare behind-the-scenes view of Kentridge -- at work in his South African studio and home, in galleries around the world, and backstage at The Met -- revealing his working methods, ideas, and the interconnections between his life and his work.
