Frantz Fanon on Film

Frantz Fanon would have been 89 years old this July had he not succumbed to leukamia at the young age of 36. Best known for his radical and innovative work Black Skin, White Masks and The Wretched of the Earth, Fanon was a psychiatrist, anti-colonial theorist and activist born in Martinique. The documentary Black Skin White Mask by British filmmaker Isaac Julien is a performative and hybrid film which brings together archival footage, interviews with family members and re-enactments to piece together the life of this influential thinker.
