The Cooley Gallery and Converge 45 are pleased to announce FROM AFAR (ii), a week-long virtual festival of five films that explore personal and national memory, monumentalism, and collective inheritances.

FROM AFAR (ii) will be presented online for free, through a special collaboration with the Northwest Film Forum.

Mati Diop’s short film A Thousand Suns follows Magaye Niang, the star actor from the acclaimed 1973 film Touki Bouki. Niang attends a commemorative screening of Touki Bouki, showing us how cinema and memory reflect and distort our lives.
