Description - Concerning Violence by Goran Hugo Olsson
An unblinking portrait of the anti-colonial struggles of the 1960s, Concerning Violence combines more than 150 arresting colour and black-and-white photographs from Goran Hugo Olsson's award-winning documentary by the same name, with passages from Frantz Fanon's classic The Wretched of the Earth (Penguin Classics, 2001). Concerning Violence is a powerful commentary on the history of colonialism and struggles for self-determination, whose echoes remain with us today, and will introduce a new generation to Frantz Fanon.
