In the context of the 64th anniversary of the start of the Algerian revolution, and in the context of the ongoing injustices and enduring illegal occupations in the world, we wanted to mark the date with a screening of the newly released documentary by Hassane Mezine “Fanon, hier, aujoud’hui” (with English subtitles). This film offers a timely opportunity to remind ourselves of the importance of the work and legacy of Frantz Fanon, and his contribution to the Algerian revolution and other National Liberation Movements in Africa and elsewhere. His work is a huge inspiration in the fields of post-colonial studies and critical theory.
This documentary gives a privileged and rare insight into the life of Frantz Fanon through the stories and accounts of the people who were closest to him in his life and until his death.
The evening will progress nicely, starting with the warm sounds of Oud virtuoso Yaz Fentazi to get you in the mood for the documentary plus a post-screening Q&A with Director Hassane Meziane.
