"Other Faces" continues on from the 9 "Drawings for Projection" series, which begun in 1989 and was completed in 2005. Tying together fiction, news and introspection, Kentridge reveals his own feelings and life story in bits and pieces, sometimes through the recurring characters of Soho Eckstein and Felix Teitlebaum. 

Other faces takes place in the streets of Johannesburg and the surrounding area, Kentridge’s preferred backdrop. He delivers a fragmented story composed of fact, invention and memory. His animation technique evokes the fog of memory: drawings and overpaintings overlap in a faithful account whose illusions culminate in the collapse of a projector screen.
