Who was Franz Fanon and what is his legacy today?
As part of The Decolonial Earth event on Saturday 15th June 2019, we invite you to a screening of Fanon, Yesterday, Today (Fanon, Hier, Aujourd’hui) by Hassane Mezine, a documentary examining the legacy of Martinican-born thinker and revolutionary Frantz Fanon.
Through the testimonies of his comrades and the people who knew him, Hassane Mezine explores Fanon’s eventful life and extraordinary struggles. The Caribbean intellectual died in 1961, yet the impact of his work is still tremendous on various social movements. The documentary examines the relevance of Fanonian thought in the context of contemporary revolts in South Africa, Palestine, Algeria and the United States. The Director takes the viewer on a journey, from the homeland to the hubs of political and social struggles passing through the land where he rests.
