Sundance 2014: ‘Concerning Violence’, a documentary on African liberation, releases its first trailer

Concerning Violence

Throughout the history of film, documentaries have had a penchant for telling tales not often seen in cinema. Whether they be small stories about ordinary people, or large ones about key moments in history, documentaries have often been a way to capture and portray them. Following in this tradition is the newest documentary from filmmaker Göran Olsson, which looks at the subject of liberation struggles of African countries in the 60s and 70s. Titled Concerning Violence, the documentary is Olsson’s fourth, and uses archive footage, with narration from singer Lauryn Hill. The first trailer for the film, which is set to premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, has now been released, and can be seen below.
