Black Skin, White Masks (1995)

Black Skin, White Masks is the seminal book by anti-colonialist psychiatrist and philosopher Frantz Fanon, as well as the title of a documentary about his life and works. This film contextualises the socio-political environment that young Fanon found himself in, directly explaining how he would go onto challenge racist discrimination and white hegemonic systems. Fanon’s thoughts on colonialism, slavery and race have inspired generations of revolutionaries and their campaigns; therefore for fans of his work and those unfamiliar with him, this is a must see film.
