William Kentridge, Shadow Procession

William Kentridge, Shadow Procession from Pacific Operaworks on Vimeo.

William Kentridge is a South African artist who is globally recognized for his handcrafted animated films, drawings and theatrical productions. His project for The 59th Minute, Shadow Procession, depicts a haunting procession of black puppet-like figures made from cardboard cutouts. The figures, hunched and crippled, move from left to right across the screen hauling their belongings-donkeys, carts, chairs, sacks, even whole towns on their backs-as if in an exodus.
