This documentary was the first film to explore Frantz Fanon (1925 - 1961), the preeminent theorist of 20th century anti-colonial movements. 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. This innovative film biography restores Fanon to his rightful place at the center of contemporary discussions around post-colonial identity. Directed by acclaimed British artist and UC Santa Cruz professor Isaac Julien.

"We revolt simply because, for many reasons, we can no longer breathe."  — Frantz Fanon
