Orchestrating Time: The Films of William Kentridge

Highly acclaimed South African artist William Kentridge visits UC Berkeley this spring with the US premiere of his latest opera, SIBYL, at Cal Performances and a slate of related events as part of a campus residency. BAMPFA's film retrospective and gallery installation of Other Faces showcase Kentridge's distinctive work in time-based media. Kentridge was born in Johannesburg in 1955 of Lithuanian Jewish descent to parents who were both barristers and defended the civil rights of South Africans. With a degree in politics and African studies, and training in art, theater, and mime, Kentridge has, over the course of his prolific career, worked across multiple disciplines: print and drawing, film, performance, sculpture, mural, and tapestry. Film and the projected image are a core element of his staged operas, several of which are shown here in filmed versions... - Susan Oxtoby, Director of Film and Senior Film Curator
