This film focuses on the life of Frantz Fanon.  Running time is 50 minutes; there will be a brief introduction prior to viewing, then a brief discussion at the conclusion of the film.

The film explores the life and work of the renowned anti-colonial theorist Frantz Fanon. Fanon's famed work, Black Skin, White Mask, along with The Wretched of the Earth, were groundbreaking studies about the psychological impact of racism on both the colonized and colonizer.  The film reveals the extraordinary life of this great intellectual, as he himself went through a psychological renaissance, breaking free from the binds of his own colonial experience, to become a freedom fighter and scholar.  This biography is a tribute to the life, times, and struggles of a great activist!
