The upcoming TV series SELF PORTRAIT AS A COFFEE POT, created and directed by the acclaimed South African artist and filmmaker William Kentridge, will have its UK premiere at the 66th BFI London Film Festival 2022 on 7th October at The ICA (Institute Of Contemporary Arts).
Inspired in part by Charlie Chaplin, Dziga Vertov and the innovative wit of early cinema, pioneering South African artist William Kentridge offers a cinematic experience of the creative process during the first year of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Nine distinct yet subtly interconnected episodes introduce us to William and his collaborators in action, inviting us to step inside the intimacy of the studio as shared discoveries about culture, history and politics, and profound truths about the ways we live and think today are uncovered through the making of works of art.
