The Institute for African Alternatives and Surplus Radical Books are pleased to invite you to a film screening of “Concerning Violence: Nine Scenes from Anti-Imperialistic Self-Defense” by Göran Hugo Olsson. This event forms part of our African Film Series in which we explore the life and times of important African revolutionaries and events through film.
Narrated by Rap and Neo-Soul music icon, Lauryn Hill, Concerning Violence is both an archive-driven documentary covering the most daring moments in the struggle for liberation in the Third World, as well as an exploration into the mechanisms of decolonization through text from Frantz Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth. Fanon’s landmark book, written over 50 years ago, is still a major tool for understanding and illuminating the neo-colonialism happening today, as well as the violence and reactions against it.
The screening will take place on Wednesday 28 June from 6 pm at Bertha House (67-69 Main Rd, Mowbray) inside the Bertha Bioscope.
