Other Faces, 2011—the newest installment in the "Drawing for Projection" series by the South African artist William Kentridge—is the Albright-Knox’s most recent film acquisition. The film focuses on questions of memory, perception, and coming to terms with life in post-apartheid South Africa. The film's animation synthesizes Kentridge’s charcoal drawings into a narrative.
