MATATU & The Roxie invite you to two evenings with filmmakers Isaac Julien and Mark Nash. The filmmakers will be present for a screening at The Roxie (SF Mission) on Tuesday, May 7 and at Red Bay Coffee (OAK Fruitvale) on Thursday, May 23. The filmmakers will engage in a participatory conversation following both screenings. Capacity audiences anticipated both evenings. Early purchase suggested.

Frantz Fanon: Black Skin, White Mask explores for the first time on film the pre-eminent theorist of the anti-colonial movements of this century. 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. Jean-Paul Sartre recognized Fanon as the figure “through whose voice the Third World finds and speaks for itself.” This innovative film biography restores Fanon to his rightful place at the center of contemporary discussions around post-colonial identity.
