William Kentridge, Triumphs and Laments
(Giovanni Troilo, Italy 2016, 70 min., DCP)
William Kentridge, Triumphs and Laments tells the story of the making of Triumphs and Laments, one of Kentridge’s most ambitious and controversial projects, a colossal tribute to the history of Rome. A 550 meters long frieze on the Tiber Banks, portraying the glories and the tragedies of the Eternal City. Yet, it will disappear within a few years. This film, shot with exclusive access over two years, is the most complete record of this piece. Filmmakers entered the artist’s studio in Johannesburg and followed the rehearsals leading to the grand opening held in Rome in April last year, tracing back the connections that link Triumphs and Laments to Kentridge’s most fundamental themes, such as the refusal of racial discrimination or the complex relations between landscape and memory.
