Absolutely necessary film to understand the common history colonizers-colonized
Excellent and brave work. Very recommendable. If you expect an essay about the causes, consequences, etc of colonialism this is not your film. This film is about violence. The violence imposed by the colonizers, and the violence in response, by the colonized. The use of Fenon's text and how it is supported by the images and music is remarkable. A lot of merit should go to Fenon actually. The film contains some rough images, it can be truly tough sometimes. But it is not gore. Everything is put in the right context. It leaves several ends open: it only deals with old archive images (mostly 70's) so the current problems are not analyzed. I am OK with that. (Seen at the Docaviv festival)
