COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

"Le colonialisme n’est pas une machine à penser, n’est pas un corps doué de raison. Il est la violence à l’état de nature et ne peut s’incliner que devant une plus grande violence" Franz Fanon, Les Damnés de la Terre, 1961.
Au travers des textes de Fanon, Concerning Violence met en image des archives et plusieurs entretiens, retraçant ainsi l’histoire des peuples africains et de leurs luttes pour la liberté et l’indépendance.
La modernité du parti pris esthétique de Concerning Violence offre au public une nouvelle analyse des mécanismes du colonialisme, permettant ainsi une autre lecture des origines des conflits actuels.

After his success during the 2011 Panorama with The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975" about the Afro-American civil rights movement, Göran Hugo Olsson returns with a retrospective view of Africa’s independence movements. Based on Frantz Fanon’s famous book, The Wretched of the Earth, the film describes the uprisings that led to Africa’s decolonisation. Once again, Olsson concentrates on archive material filmed in Africa by Swedish documentary filmmakers and television journalists between 1966 and 1984. Footage of liberation movements in Angola, the Frelimo in Mozambique and the struggle for independence in Guinea-Bissau are juxtaposed with documentary images of Swedish missionaries in Tanzania and a strike in a Swedish mine in Liberia. Musician Lauryn Hill brings to life Fanon’s polarising texts which structure and provide commentary on the film’s visual material. A glimpse of today’s smouldering conflicts along the old colonial borders shows that, even 50 years after Fanon’s death, Africa is still having to deal with the consequences of centuries of European raids and interventions
