Fanon: Yesterday, Today

Directed by Hassane MEZINE

Who was Frantz Fanon and what is his legacy today? Fanon, Yesterday and Today, by documentary maker Hassane Mezine, gives a voice to men and women who knew him and explores privileged moments during his struggles but also intimate ones in a family and friendly context.

Fanon died in December 1961, but his reflection irrigated numerous revolutionary fields throughout the world.
What view of this thinker and action man have those who continue the fight today on different fronts against injustice and arbitrariness?

The Director takes the viewer on a journey, from the homeland to the hubs of political and social struggles passing through the land where he rests.

North and South of the world, activists talk of their struggle and reflect on their connections to Frantz Fanon.
The transmission is thus established between the historical dimension and the diverse contemporary spaces swept by the Fanonian breath.
