Art21 presents this special screening followed by a Q&A with the artist

BAMcinématek and Art21 present a special one-night only screening of the Peabody awardwinning PBS documentary William Kentridge: Anything is Possible directed by Susan Sollins and Charles Atlas, giving viewers an intimate look into the mind and creative process of the South African artist whose acclaimed charcoal drawings, animations, video installations, shadow plays, mechanical puppets, tapestries, sculptures, live performance pieces, and operas have made him one of the most dynamic and exciting contemporary artists working today. With rich historical references and undertones of political and social commentary, this documentary features exclusive interviews with Kentridge as he works in his studio and discusses his artistic philosophy and techniques, and follows his preparations for The Nose, which returns to the Metropolitan Opera this fall and will be broadcast in BAM Rose Cinemas’ The Met: Live in HD program on October 26. Kentridge directed BAM’s 2007 production of The Magic Flute and returns to Brooklyn for a Q&A following this screening. Art21 is the preeminent chronicler of contemporary art and artists through the power of digital media and has created a new paradigm for teaching and learning about the creative process. 53min.

Kentridge will be in person.
