FRANTZ FANON, TRAJECTOIRE D’UN RÉVOLT

Speaker

Discussion to follow with director Mathieu Glissant, Prof. Felwine Sarr and Fanon scholar Chloé Kaczmarek

A documentary on Frantz Fanon, whose life and work embodies all the issues of French colonial history. As a doctor, he revolutionized the practice of psychiatry, seeking in the relations of domination of colonial societies the foundations of the pathologies of his patients in Blida. And as an activist, he brought together through his action and his history, the anger of peoples crushed by centuries of colonial oppression. He has left an incomparable body of work which has made him one of the most studied French authors across the Atlantic.
