Frantz Fanon: Black Skin, White Mask
Berlinale (Berlin International Film Festival) • Documentary, Drama, Biography
Frantz Fanon: Black Skin, White Mask explores the preeminent theorist of the twentieth century anti-colonial movements, a man whom Jean-Paul Sartre recognized as the figure “through whose voice the Third World finds and speaks for itself.” Isaac Julien, the celebrated black British director of such provocative films as Looking for Langston and Young Soul Rebels, integrates the facts of Fanon's brief but eventful life with his long and tortuous inner journey, restoring Fanon to his rightful place at the center of contemporary discussions around post-colonial identity.
