Hassane Mezine is a French-Algerian photographer, whose film “Fanon yesterday, today” addresses the impact and legacy of psychiatrist, author and anti-colonial activist Frantz Fanon. The film engages both with a life history approach to Fanon and his work, and a contemporary analysis of his relevance for anti-imperialist and anti-racist struggles all over the world. Family members, former colleagues, academics and activists provide their views on Fanon and the legacy of his thought in interviews that are conducted in a range of geographical areas, including France, Algeria, Palestine, South Africa, and the US.

The screening of the film (87 min) will be followed by a discussion between the director Hassane Mezine, artist-researcher Minou Norouzi (Helsinki Collegium of Advanced Studies) and curator-researcher Giovanna Esposito Yussif.
