Concerning Violence (Göran Hugo Olsson, 2014, 90 minutes)

Narrated by Lauryn Hill, this profound essay documentary depicts Africa’s struggle for liberation from colonial rule in the late ’60s and ’70s. From the director of ‘The Black Power Mixtape’ comes a bold and fresh visual narrative on Africa, based on newly discovered archive material accompanied by text from Frantz Fanon’s ‘The Wretched of the Earth’.
