For Educators

In connection with William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible, Art21 has produced additional educational resources to support teaching with the film in classroom and community contexts. In this section, you will find two kinds of materials: On Theme and Case studies. Each of these resources can be used in connection with the William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible Educators’ Guide and Screening Companion, as well as individual chapters of the film.
