An exploration of ‘lessons learned’ for the organization, post the publication of the case study (which by definition necessitates further and wider reading) as well as a series of recommendations for enhancing enterprise risk management activities for that organization, that should seek to develop its enterprise resilience capabilities.
During this segment, Kentridge reduces characters to silhouettes, the figures resemble his expressive charcoal drawings. The choice to use a monochrome colour scheme connects the aesthetics of the film to Kentridge’s interest in the 1940s and the industrial revolution. In this scene it is particularly distinct and instills a powerful reaction. At times, the many components of the piece can threaten the deliverance, but the decision to use limited colour and maintain stark lines in the video, balances and bolsters the visual communication.

By simplifying the figures to shadows Kentridge invites the viewer to expand their thinking beyond the visual information available to them, like the prisoner escaping from the cave. The title, ‘The Refusal of Time’, can also be linked to the industrial revolution and the origin of time zones. Time zones were introduced during the turn of the industrial revolution in order to schedule trains correctly according to different local times, since people had never travelled long distance so quickly. In an interview Kentridge described “a refusal (from non-west countries) of the European sense of order imposed by time zones; not only literally, but a refusal that also referred metaphorically to other forms of control as well.” (Kentridge, 2014). With this he was describing the opposition non-western countries such as South Africa had to being amalgamated into the Western cultural infrastructure using, in part, their system of time zones. In a way, it was a literal refusal of time. During Kentridge’s lif>GET ANSWER
