" 'William Kentridge: anything is possible' provides a rare, in-depth look at the life and work of the internationally acclaimed South African artist, William Kentridge. Working in a variety of media - including sculpture, drawing, animation, tapestry, film, theater, and opera - Kentridge tackles a broad range of subjects, from cataclysmic historical events to poignant personal moments. [The film] features exclusive interviews with Kentridge discussing his family's history and life under apartheid, and revealing the importance of improvisation, inquiry, and open-ended possibilities in his process. Follow Kentridge on an international journey that documents his work behind the scenes: from the intimacy of his Johannesburg studio, to galleries worldwide, to backstage at New York's Metropolitan Opera as he develops, stages, and directs Shostakovich's The Nose, based on Gogol's story"--Container.

A profile of the latter works of the artist. Starts off a bit slow, but it gets better as it nears the end, especially when he talks of the nature of art and artists.
