Departing from a dialogue between archival footage of an amazing diversity and texts from the important African thinker Frantz Fanon, "Concerning Violence" is a violent picture of power relations between Europeans and Africans, with special focus on African countries that were colonized by Portugal. This film is a mandatory document for further discussion — delayed until now — on the role of Portugal as a colonial power in Africa and its necessarily violent methods.
