Synopsis

Biopic about the life and works of Afro-French psychiatrist Frantz Fanon, portrayed by Colin Salmon. Fanon was heavily involved in anti-colonial movements throughout his life, from his native Martinique to Algeria and throughout the world as he grew increasingly frustrated with the oppression of black people. Despite fighting with the French resistance in the Second World War, after qualifying as a psychiatrist and moving to Algeria, Fanon joined the battle to free the African country from French rule, continuing to do so when he was later exiled to Tunisia. This is an account of his life's work, documented in interviews, archival footage and dramatic reconstructions of key events.
