15, 16 Oct 2005. Journey to the Moon 9 Drawings for projection by William Kentridge. These animated short films by South African contemporary visual artist William Kentridge are deeply rooted in his country of birth. Voyage to the Moon 9 Drawings for projection is the artists personal homage to the end of apartheid and to South Africas long road to democracy that started 10 years ago. Kentridge celebrates the 10th anniversary of the end of apartheid by narrating the life of Soho Eckstein, a Johannesburg property developer, and his timid alter ego Felix Teitlebaum. The shorts that make up the film were shot between 1989 and 2003 and testify the political and social development of the country and its artistic liveliness. The images have not only the artists peculiar touch but also his subtle sense of humour and inventiveness that capture the spectators gaze. The music that accompanies the film has been composed by the South African composer Philip Miller and is performed live by an ensemble made up of a quartet and a piano.
