Concerning Violence: Nine Scenes from the Anti-Imperialistic Self-Defense

Synopsis
CONCERNING VIOLENCE is both an archive-driven documentary covering the most daring moments in the struggle for liberation in the Third World, as well as an exploration into the mechanisms of decolonisation through text from Frantz Fanon’s ‘The Wretched of the Earth’. Fanon’s landmark book, is still a major tool for understanding and illuminating the neocolonialism happening today, as well as the violence and reactions against it.
