Prophet and chief theorist of anti-colonial movements of the 20th century and beyond, the Martinique-born Fanon’s life lasted only 36 years, but this was enough time for him to leave behind an incalculable legacy. In their inventive documentary, Isaac Julien and Mark Nash reckon with Fanon’s epoch-defining writings through archival footage, interviews with friends and family, dramatizations, and an ongoing exegesis by cultural critics Stuart Hall and Françoise Verges, while also depicting the man behind these invaluable works. Thrilling cinema, at the speed of revolutionary thought. Julien and Nash will be joined by Kazembe Balagun for a conversation following the New York Premiere of this brand new 2K restoration.

A Film Movement Classics release.
