Using archival footage from anti-colonial movements in Africa in the '60s and '70s, documentarian Goran Hugo Olsson's film Concerning Violence explores the work and philosophies of psychiatrist and revolutionary Frantz Fanon.

Olsson tells The Huffington Post, "I made the film as Fanon for beginners in Northern Europe and I didn't expect it to travel and play good in Africa. But any European or I have nothing to say to any African about how they should organize or react. I don't think my work could in anyway enlighten people under oppression. European documentary filmmakers should never go to Africa and make documentaries because they have a colonial view. If we want to see films on Africa we can see African films made by African filmmakers."
