    William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible 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.

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. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
