Concerning Violence

9 Dec
19.00

Suitable for Ages 16+

Presented by Fade to Black Film Festival and STUN (Sustained Theatre Up North)

Concerning Violence (film showing)

From the director of The Black Power Mixtape comes a bold and fresh visual narrative on Africa, based on newly discovered archive material covering the struggle for liberation from colonial rule in the late ’60s and ’70s, accompanied by text from Frantz Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth. Narrated by Lauryn Hill.

“Archival footage provides a damning indictment of European imperialism from the director of ‘The Black Power Mixtape.’”

“Concerning Violence is one of the best documentaries to hit this year’s Sundance. It also acts as an excellent companion piece to We Come As Friends, another great doc about imperialism in Africa that’s been playing the fest. It stands alone both as a work of history, sociology, psychology, and philosophy.”
