KEEPING IT REAL EVENING COURSE: CONCERNING VIOLENCE

Göran Olsson

Structuring his film around singer Ms Lauryn Hill’s reading of Franz Fanon’s text, and original footage captured during the final years of colonialism in African countries, Swedish filmmaker Göran Olsson creates a fertile ground from which to expose ongoing issues in the struggles for independence. In his presentation, Dr Stephen Baker will question the effectiveness of the film’s didactic and consider Fanon’s critique of European capitalism, particularly in the light of the recent referendum.
