Willem Boshoff: Reflections of a South African Artist
(2010/23mins/Colour & B&W/HDV/English)
Filmed and edited by Ian McDonald
Interview by Tom Hickey
Shot during the period of his residency at the Cradle of Humankind near Johannesburg and interspersed with visuals of a retrospective of his works at the Johannesburg Art Gallery, the acclaimed artist Willem Boshoff muses upon a life ‘at odds’ with himself, with his own people, and with Apartheid. In providing a personal portrait of one of South Africa’s most enduring artist, the documentary shines a light on a neglected story of opposition and resistance from Afrikaans-speaking South Africans to Apartheid.
