Concerning Violence (2014) (trailer)

Part 1   Part 2   Part 3                              

The powerful new film from Göran Hugo Olsson, director of The Black Power Mixtape, is a fresh and bold visual narrative, documenting the liberation from colonial rule in the '60s and '70s in Africa. Working with recently discovered archival footage, the film depicts some of the most daring moments ever captured during the anti-colonialist struggle. Drawn from Frantz Fanon’s still-evocative and searing text “The Wretched of the Earth” and narrated by the socially engaged singer Lauryn Hill, Concerning Violence is a striking and emotionally resonant cinematic essay, which confronts the dehumanizing mechanisms of colonialism of the past to illuminate the urgent need for change in the present.
