Reed College's Cooley Gallery is pleased to present From Afar, a weeklong film festival organized by Roland Dahwen—artist, filmmaker, and the Cooley’s Artist-in-Residence during the 2020–2021 academic year. Through a special collaboration with Northwest Film Forum, Seattle, all five films in From Afar will be screened from December 10 to 20, 2020, free of charge with a pass from Northwest Film Forum.
From Afar presents films that, in Dahwen’s words, “vacillate between nonfiction and fiction, defying easy classification, and showing us what we’ve always known: that our rehearsals, our theaters, our fictions, and our imaginaries, are also inherent layers of our realities. The films are specific and individual, at times overt, and more often latent and elusive; they are focused, in unique ways, on personal dignity.” Dahwen explores each film in a series of accompanying essays, available online through the Cooley beginning December 10.

Soleil Ô (1970) by Med Hondo (102 min.)
