FROM AFAR II is a virtual film festival that reflects on personal and national memory; monumentalism; and collective inheritance. These five films question the ways we produce—and are subjugated by—the recursive images that saturate everyday life. The festival is organized by Roland Dahwen (artist, filmmaker, and the Cooley's 2020–2021 artist-in-residence) and supported by Cooley curator Stephanie Snyder. FROM AFAR II is a program of the Cooley Gallery, presented in collaboration with Converge 45.
FROM AFAR II will be presented online for free, through a special collaboration with the Northwest Film Forum. All films will be available on-demand for the duration of the festival: August 27 – September 11, 2021. PLEASE NOTE: Due to distributor restrictions, the films are only available to view within the United States.
