Beyond the sky @ Museum of African diaspora: Yo-Yo Gonthier

San Fransisco 20 Octobre 2021 - 27 Février 2022

Beyond the Sky is a presentation of 4 short films from a selection of contemporary African filmmakers. In this collection, each film moves seamlessly between the personal and metaphysical, connecting cinematic voices across the different regions of Africa.

Finding comfort floating in uncertainty, these filmmakers pose questions — some obvious, some hidden — in an attempt at guiding us toward futurity. While maintaining allegiance to specific regional traditions, the images presented in this series reframe traditional African images into a new digital vernacular. This series of moving images suspends you in a space that conjures personal memories and locates a common language in digital gestures.
