Trailer for the documentary Concerning Violence.

Docu combines newly discovered archival material depicting some of the most daring moments in the confrontation with colonial power, accompanied by singer Lauryn Hill's searing narrative and drawn from psychologist/philosopher Frantz Fanon's seminal anticolonial text, The Wretched of the Earth.

In this potent, arresting, and surprisingly emotional film, Olsson artfully elucidates Fanon's psychiatric and psychological analysis of the dehumanizing effects of colonization on the individual and the nation. Concerning Violence makes accessible Fanon's theory that the violence of colonialism must be met with greater violence to be defeated, as well as his vision and plea to reject the lust for colonial power and instead embrace a more creative and humane society. As a result, Olsson's powerful documentary makes an accurate, timely, and vital contribution toward building a better world for the future.
