Frantz Fanon: Black Skin, White Mask
Length:65 minutes
Country:Great Britain

Recognized by Jean-Paul Sartre as the figure "through whom the Third World finds and speaks for itself", Frantz Fanon is the Martinician-born psychiatrist whose books Black Skin, White Mask and The Wretched of the Earth revealed the psychology of racism on both colonized and colonizer. In turn, Fanon's writings have become essential texts for liberation movements everywhere.

Filmmaker Isaac Julien weaves together interviews with family members and friends, documentary footage, readings from Fanon's work and dramatizations from the author's life, from his birth in 1925 to his work with the French Resistance and his eventual departure to Algeria where he served at a psychiatric hospital before resigning to fight for Algerian independance. "Visually stunning and intellectually provocative, Isaac Julien's film is an eloquent and complex exploration of the life and legacy of this century's most compelling theorist of racism and colonialism.
