In collaboration with the 2009 Robert Flaherty Seminar at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, a program entitled "Witnesses, Monuments, Ruins," exploring the act of bearing witness and bringing past experience into the present, will screen film directed by Abderrahmane Sissako.

Raised in Mauritania and Mali, Sissako studied Russian literature at the University of Moscow, and cinema at Moscow's famous VGIK Institute for Cinema. His work, which often deals with childhood loss, is deeply personal and at the same time philosophical in his exploration of identity and contemporary Africa.

Sissako is currently based in France.
