How to connect head unit to external screen by first identifying connector/cable

Hello all, first post. I have a Sony XAV-AX8000 car stereo, which by design has a separate screen that attaches to the body/head unit via an FFC of some sort (pic attached). I would like to find a way to create an "extension lead" so that the screen can be mounted up to 40cm away. Can anyone identify the type of connector and/or cable and is this even a good idea? It feels like it "should" be a fairly standard cable, but it's not an area I am knowledgable about. Any thoughts/advice or help to identify a solution etc welcome! Attached are both ends of the plug that connects the two parts together along with a photo of the ribbon cable.
