UK distributor Dogwoof has acquired Concerning Violence (pictured), the latest documentary from the director of The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975, in an all-rights deal.

Göran Hugo Olsson’s Africa-focused film is based on Frantz Fanon’s influential text The Wretched of the Earth, and is narrated by musician Lauryn Hill. Oli Harbottle, Dogwoof’s head of distribution, brokered the deal with Jean-Christophe Simon of Films Boutique, and a late fall theatrical release is being lined up for the UK.

Films Boutique’s Simon said: “Concerning Violence is an important film showing that decolonization is a long process and [one] which is still going on. We are very happy to collaborate with Dogwoof as they are the perfect fit for the film and also the best to bring documentaries with engaged political topics to the audience in the UK.”
