Ian Mcdonald

Research output: Non-textual outputDigital or Visual Products


Shot during the period of his residency at the Cradle of Humankind near Johannesburg in 2007, 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.
