THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

DRAWINGS FOR PROJECTION
DIRECTOR: WILLIAM KENTRIDGE
SOUTH AFRICA
Celebrated internationally for his drawings, films, sculptures, installations, and stage work, South African artist William Kentridge explores the history and post-apartheid political transformations of his country with extraordinary feeling and provocative passion. His animated films—each scene made by erasing and reworking a single, large-scale charcoal drawing to create successive, remnant images—provide a metaphor for his principal themes: the layering of memory, changing notions of history and belonging, and the passing of time. Composed of nine short films made between 1989 and 2005, DRAWINGS FOR PROJECTION investigates the fictional melodrama of antihero Soho Eckstein, a wealthy white developer, chronicling the rise of his Johannesburg empire, his wife's passionate affair with his alter ego, and a multitude of moral complexities against the backdrop of South Africa's shifting political and social realities. "I have never tried to make illustrations of apartheid. But my drawings and films are certainly spawned by and feed off the brutalized society left in its wake. I am interested in a political art . . .an art of ambiguity, contradiction, uncompleted gestures and uncertain endings. An art—and a politics—in which optimism is kept in check and nihilism at bay."—William Kentridge. (80 mins.) ( 80 min )

SIMPLE ACTIONS AND ABERRANT BEHAVIORS
DIRECTOR: VARIOUS
VARIOUS
"In placing oneself both behind and in front of the lens, an artist creates an inescapable connection between the work and their own lives, regardless of the actual corollaries between that 'presence' caught on tape and the lives of the performers making those actions. In this collection of recent videos, artists use a variety of strategies as they play out their scenes for the camera, the program moving in an arc from simple endurance-based actions to more elaborately staged events representing a spectrum stretching from the very real to the completely imagined."—Pablo de Ocampo, Curator, Cinema Project. The program includes UNTITLED (EELS) (2001) by Patty Chang; BEYOND USUAL LIMITS: PART 1 (2006), by Deirdre Logue; WHAT (2001), by Reza Afisina; A TIME TO DIE (2006), by Joe Gibbons; SQUIGGLE (2005), by Oliver Husain; LOLLYPOP (2006), by Kalup Linzy; and LIVE TO TELL (2002), by Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay. ( 75 min )
