Concerning Violence

Narrated by Lauryn Hill, Concerning Violence uses archival footage to explore the most daring moments in the struggle for liberation in the Third World. It is also an exploration of decolonization as expressed in Frantz Fanon's The Wretched of the Earth. Fanon's landmark book, written over 50 years ago, is still a major tool for understanding and illuminating the neocolonialism happening today, as well as the violence and reactions against it. Director Göran Hugo Olsson (The Black Power Mixtape) gathers footage of anti-imperialist liberation movements from the 1970s onward, drawn from the Swedish Television archives, and crafts a powerful document that brings us face-to-face with the people for whom Fanon's writings were not just rhetoric, but a reality.
