ABOUT THE FILM:  From the director of The Black Power Mixtape comes a bold and fresh visual narrative based on Frantz Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth accompanied by archive material from Swedish documentary films 1966 – 1987 covering the most daring moments in the struggle for liberation from colonial rule. 

Fanon’s landmark book, written over 50 years ago, is still a major tool for understanding and illuminating the neocolonialism happening today, as well as the violence and reactions against it.
