Dark Continent

Dark continent (Short)

Dark Continent deals with the racial phobias resulting from the colonial imaginary and their transmission through music. His film is an adaptation of a case study from Martinican psychiatrist and anti-colonial writer Frantz Fanonʼs book Black Skin, White Masks (1952): a young White French woman suffers from a nervous disorder triggered by the sound of African drums—prohibited by colonial regimes and slave owners because they were suspected of carrying signals of rebellion.
