      Universal Archive: A selection of films by William Kentridge | Broad Underground Film Series

      “Universal Archive: A selection of films by William Kentridge” traces the artist's creative path from the early 1990s to the present day. Presented chronologically, these short films become enmeshed in a complex, ever-expanding network of self-referentiality and reflection. Drawing - and then tirelessly, insistently redrawing - the unstable, jagged outlines of history (his own, and that of his native South Africa), memory, and creative process, Kentridge etches layers upon layers into his monumental living archive - at once universal and deeply personal.
