Concerning Violence

Göran Olsson, Sweden, 2013

85 min.Documentary

"Concerning Violence" is a visual narrative from Africa, based on newly discovered archive material covering the most daring moments in the struggle for liberation from colonial rule. This powerful footage is combined with text from Frantz Fanon's book "The Wretched of the Earth" - written in 1960 and still a tool for understanding and illuminating the neocolonialism happening today, as well as the unrest and the reactions against it.
