Frantz Fanon: Black Skin White Mask - BUY THIS DVD!
**GORGEOUS 2K RESTORATION OF FULL-LENGTH DIRECTOR'S CUT BEING RELEASED FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON BLU RAY IN NORTH AMERICA**
Frantz Fanon: Black Skin, White Mask explores for the first time on film the pre-eminent theorist of the anti-colonial movements of this century. Fanon's two major works, Black Skin, White Masks and The Wretched of the Earth, were pioneering studies of the psychological impact of racism on both colonized and colonizer. Jean-Paul Sartre recognized Fanon as the figure "through whose voice the Third World finds and speaks for itself." This innovative film biography restores Fanon to his rightful place at the center of contemporary discussions around post-colonial identity.
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 remarkably eventful life with his long and tortuous inner journey. Julien elegantly weaves together interviews with family members and friends, documentary footage, readings from Fanon's work and dramatizations of crucial moments in Fanon's life. Cultural critics Stuart Hall and FranÃ§oise Verges position Fanon's work in his own time and draw out its implications for our own.
Bonus features include short film Between Two Worlds directed by Mark Nash, Booklet with essays by filmmakers Isaac Julien and Mark Nash.
